Fort Drum lieutenant colonel reportedly killed in Afghanistan


A lieutenant colonel from Fort Drum was killed Saturday in Afghanistan, according to the Times Union in Albany.

Lt. Col. Todd Clark, 40, an Albany-area native, died in an attack in an eastern province, according to his father, Jack, the newspaper reported Sunday.

The Associated Press reported a man dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire on American soldiers in Paktika province, killing two American servicemen and a civilian Saturday, and the elder Mr. Clark indicated his son was one of those killed in that attack, the Times Union reported. Their military unit was not identified.

The 10th Mountain Division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team has soldiers serving in that province.

The death had not been confirmed by the U.S. Department of Defense or Fort Drum as of Sunday evening.

Lt. Col. Clark is survived by his wife and two young children, who live in Jefferson County, the Times Union reported.
