The death of a soldier in Iraq rattles the town of Clovis today.
22 year old Private First-Class Rick Salas Junior was killed when the Humvee he was driving ran over an IED causing his vehicle to flip.
Salas' mother who currently lives in Clovis say he was expecting to return home for some R&R next month.
The Department of Defense has yet to confirm the casualty.
Salas was survived by his wife and two children.
