Contractor Killed in Iraq from MsSparky

March 20, 2011

Sadly, another truck driver has lost his life while supporting our troops. I don’t have a lot of information on this yet but was told truck driver Johnny “High Stepper” Smith died in Germany from injuries he received when the truck he was driving hit an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Iraq.

I was told Johnny worked out of Q-West and Mosul.

My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends and co-workers.

I will update this post with more information as I receive it.
