Charles Raver said he learned Sunday that his son, E4 Specialist Bryn Raver, had died when insurgents attacked the armored personnel vehicle he was driving with a rocket-propelled grenade.
He said officers stationed in Afghanistan had called him earlier Monday and said his son hadn’t done anything wrong and hadn’t suffered with the RPG penetrated the the vehicle’s armor and exploded. The officer said Raver and a passenger in the front seat died, and two soldiers in the back seat were wounded.49 US soldiers died this month in Afghanistan .
