Michigan native killed in Iraq
Sergeant First Class Casey Howe was part of a convoy headed to join an Iraqi contingent when his patrol hit a land mine on Monday near Baghdad.
The 32-year-old Howe grew up in Deford (DEE'-ford) and joined the Army after graduating from Cass City High School in 1991.
Howe is survived by his wife, four children and parents, all from Smiths Creek near Port Huron.
He's the 60th member of the U-S armed forces with known Michigan ties to die in Iraq.
Another soldier died in the same explosion, and a third was seriously injured.
