Holcomb Statement on Death of Indiana National Guard Soldier

INDIANAPOLIS — Governor Eric J. Holcomb offered the following statement regarding the death of Fort Wayne native and Indiana National Guardsman Sgt. 1st Class Mark Boner, an automated logistical specialist who was one of about 250 soldiers who left Indiana for training at Fort Hood in Texas last week in preparation for deployment to Kuwait:

Janet and I offer sincere condolences to the family and friends of Indiana’s own Mark Boner, who lost his life yesterday at Fort Hood in Texas. Throughout his military career, Sgt. 1st Class Boner was recognized for his dedication to duty, love for family, and selfless service to his country. Words cannot express the depth of sorrow I feel for his family, especially his children and grandchildren. Hoosiers around the state join me in honoring his service and contributions to our community and our country.
