NY soldier killed in action to be buried at West Point

WARWICK – A Warwick native, who was killed in Afghanistan last weekend, will be laid to rest at the West Point Cemetery.

LTC Jaimie Leonard, 39, a USMA grad, was killed by enemy fire in Afghanistan while serving in the US Army. A 1997 graduate of the USMA, she was based at Fort Drum.

She was in her third deployment to the region – once in Iraq and twice in Afghanistan, and was the recipient of numerous awards and medals including three Bronze Stars.

Leonard will be interred with full military honors on next Thursday, June 20.
