A local Floyd County soldier in the National Guard was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan on Thursday. 21 year old Jeffery W. Jordan of Cave Spring was killed during a deployment with the 108th, which is part of the more than 2,000 members of the Macon-based 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team who are spending a year supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. Jordan grew up in Armuchee and was employed as a correctional officer at the Floyd County prison. Jordan was one of three soldiers killed in a town called Kapsia, which is just north of the capitol city of Kabul. Among the other dead are another American and a soldier from another country. According to information from the U.S. Army, Taliban insurgents attacked their vehicle with a roadside bomb and followed up with small arms fire. It is not known if the other American killed was a member of the 108th. The unit was sent to assist in the training of Afghan police and military forces. No word yet on any arrangements for Jordan.
