FORT STEWART, Ga.) – The Third Infantry Division has confirmed the death of SPC Bryant J. Luxmore, from New Windsor, Illinois, during combat operations supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. He was a 2005 graduate from Sherrard High School.

Luxmore, 25, was assigned to Bravo Company, 1-64th Armor Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team and deployed in March 2012 for a nine month deployment. Sunday, Luxmore and his fellow Soldiers were on a dismounted patrol with Afghan National Security Forces near Panjwai, Afghanistan when they came under enemy fire and he sustained a fatal gunshot wound.

Luxmore, an infantryman, had been in the Army for 14 months and is survived by his wife and step-son. This was Luxmore's first deployment. Luxmore is posthumously promoted to Corporal, awarded the Bronze Star Medal, Purple Heart and Combat Infantryman Badge.

The 1st Battalion, 64th Armor Regiment, consisting of approximately 700 Soldiers is conducting counter-insurgency operations and training Afghanistan National Security Forces in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

The Commanding General and the Third Infantry Division express their deepest condolences to the family members of SPC Luxmore.  Chaplain support and family assistance have been extended to the Soldier's family during this time.
