Another Oklahoma soldier made the ultimate sacrifice for his country in Afghanistan over the weekend. Sergeant First Class Jeffrey Kettle died on Sunday from an IED explosion close to the Pakistani border.
Kettle was believed to be from Madill, but we spoke with his uncle in McAlester who told us he had married a woman from Madill but had never actually lived there.
He does have ties to Oklahoma, but his uncle said he calls North Carolina home.
Funeral arrangements are still pending.
