Staff Sgt. Alexandria Mae Morrow, an airman from Mountain Home Air Force Base, has died in Southwest Asia. The base announced yesterday that she died while performing maintenance duties.

The post on their Facebook page says “"fatal injury while executing her duties as a weapons loader at an expeditionary base in Southwest Asia."

She was only 25-year-old and originally from Dansville, New York and spent seven years as a Gunfighter.

Col. Jefferson O'Donnell, commander of the 366th Fighter Wing said “We will dutifully continue to perform the mission while we mourn her loss. In doing so, we honor her for making the greatest sacrifice."

Our thoughts and prayers are with Morrow's family and friends as well as everyone she served with. Thank you all for your service.
