Today the Rio Grande Valley said goodbye to a fallen soldier, killed in Afghanistan less than two weeks ago.
FOX 2 Cameras were at the Veteran’s Cemetery in Mission, where U.S. Army Sergeant Jonathan Gollnitz was laid to rest. The media did not have access to the family’s ceremony.
Gollnitz was killed in an insurgent attack by a suicide bomber on September 26th. It is reported he was one of two killed.
The 28-year-old arrived in the valley on Friday. Gollnitz leaves behind a 4-year-old son.
