Former Hastings man killed in Afghanistan
"Life is too short, why not enjoy it?"
Sgt. Wayne Hosford tried to live his life by those simple words, according to his sister, Michelle Nilson.
Hosford, 35, was killed July 6 while serving in Afghanistan with the Illinois National Guard. The vehicle he was traveling in near Konduz, Afghanistan, was hit by an improvised explosive device. It was Hosford's first deployment to Afghanistan.
