Special Forces Soldier died while saving teammate

USASFC Public Affairs Office

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (USASOC News Service, Aug. 21, 2008) An Army Special Forces Soldier died heroically in a June vehicle accident when he gave his life *to save a comrade from drowning in Afghanistan, according to the lone surviving Soldier from the vehicle accident.

Master Sgt. Shawn E. Simmons, Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey M. Rada Morales and Sgt. James M. Treber, all from Company A, 1st Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), drowned June 29 when, under the cover of darkness, their heavily armored vehicle (RG-31) dropped off a narrow, unimproved dirt road and rolled upside down into a water-filled canal.

Following recovery efforts performed by the rest of the combat convoy, Sgt. 1st Class Joseph A. Serna, was found alive but suffering from hypothermia and hypoxia.

An investigation into the events that led to the rollover of their RG-31 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP) was conducted by the Combined Joint Task Force 101, the American, division-sized task force in eastern Afghanistan.* The results of that investigation have been formally briefed to the primary next of kin of the deceased Soldiers.*
