The latest casualty in the war on terror is an Army Sergeant from Clovis. 

29 year old Robert P. Kassin was killed Sunday when his platoon was attacked by militants in Afghanistan.  Kassin was helping to rebuild communities in that country.

Robert was the oldest child and only son of Robert Joseph and Lucia Kassin. He leaves behind a wife, a son, and two step daughters.

He came to Clovis in 1990 when the Air Force assigned his father to Cannon Air Force Base. He joined the Army in September 1996.

Funeral and burial service will be held in Louisiana this Sunday.
He will receive full military honors, including a flag presentation and 21-gun salute provided by the Cannon Honor Guard.
