MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A 36-year-old from suburban Minneapolis is one of six American troops who were killed in a suicide attack near Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.
The U.S. Department of Defense on Tuesday released the identities of the troops killed in the attack. Among them was Maj. Adrianna M. Vorderbruggen of Plymouth.
Vorderbruggen was assigned to the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, 9th Field Investigations Squadron, Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.
Her father, Joseph Vorderbruggen, tells The Associated Press his daughter "loved life" and "loved the military." He says, "Whatever goal she had, she found a way."
