New Jersey town honors soldier killed in Afghanistan
RAMSEY -- Residents in a northern New Jersey town paused to remember a soldier killed in Afghanistan.
Ramsey residents lined Main Street Monday as an antique fire truck carried Army Staff. Sgt. Timothy McGill's coffin home.
Bagpipes led the procession.
The 30-year-old Special Forces soldier was one of three troops shot on Sept. 21 by an Afghan wearing a security forces uniform in an attack near the Pakistan border.
The lifelong Ramsey resident was a member of the Ramsey Volunteer Fire Department and had worked for the town's public works department between deployments.
McGill initially served as a Marine after joining the military in August 2001. He joined the Rhode Island National Guard in 2008 and qualified as an elite Special Forces soldier in 2011.
