Saluting the Brave: PFC Kyle Trigg

Attached are a couple of photos I took last summer of my best friend, Army PFC Kyle Trigg, age 21, who is currently on a year long tour in Afghanistan serving with the 82D Airborne Division's 4th Brigade Combat Team.

He grew up in Spokane and a lot of his family lives here. When Kyle was home on leave, last summer, before deployment he spent a large amount of time volunteering with me at our area's Girl Scout Day Camp, which is held at Riverside State Park each June. 

Thank you for Supporting Our Troops! Let me know if you need any additional information.

      PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.

      SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police say they saw a dramatic increase in drug related calls on Tuesday. Police say at least one person has died and officers responded to almost 20 other calls of people acting erratically. Police are looking into whether there is a drug on the street that is "creating adverse health effects." Reported behavior is consistent with a stimulant, causing people to hallucinate and act in an unpredictable and sometimes violent manner.
