Sergeant Blair Emery was killed by a roadside bomb on friday, November 30th, during his second tour of duty in Iraq.
Sgt. Emery was 24.
Emery is the second soldier from Lee to die in action in less than six months. Sergeant Joel House was 22 when he died in Iraq last June.
The two were friends and teammates at Lee Academy.
Bill Emery says his son was injured in March and put on a desk job for awhile, but he volunteered to go out in the field again so others wouldn’t have to.
