SALUTING THE BRAVE: Soldier From Idaho Dies Of Injuries

Posted: Updated:

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - A U.S. Army soldier from Idaho Falls has died from injuries sustained in an explosion in Afghanistan, family members say.

Lisa Pardonnet said her nephew, 28-year-old Army Corporal Ryan Sharp, died Saturday at a hospital in Germany.

Pardonnet said Sharp was scheduled to finish his third and final tour for the Army next year. He was taking part in a mission in the Kandahar province when the bomb exploded, wounding his legs, shoulder and head. Doctors in Afghanistan induced a coma and then transferred him to Germany for treatment.

Sharp's sister, Michelle Harrison, said Sharp is survived by his two young daughters, 6-year-old Mia and 8-year-old Sarah. The family has established the Ryan D. Sharp Memorial Fund at
the WestMark Credit Union to help cover the girls' expenses.
