Family and friends are remembering an Iowa solider killed in Afghanistan a week ago.

Twenty seven-year-old Sgt. Steve Blass of Estherville is among the five Americans killed when their helicopter went down outside Kandahar City.

This was the deadliest crash since August 2012.

Blass leaves behind a wife and 16-month-old son.

He's a graduate of Estherville High School and Iowa Lakes Community College.
