North Texas Man Killed in Afghanistan

CEDAR HILL, Texas – A 32-year-old North Texas man died over the weekend when his convoy was attacked in Afghanistan.

Jarod Keith Cravens had served eight years in the Marine Corps but returned to work as a contractor, his wife Stephanie said.

The couple has a 12-year-old son and a 9-year-old daughter.

Cravens had most recently been in North Texas just a few weeks ago on leave, where he was able to attend Game 4 of the World Series with family members, and the State Fair of Texas with his children.

His Facebook page is filled with messages from friends and family mourning his loss
