Just heard about this news from a few weeks back. Navy Lt. Florence Bacong Choe was killed last month in northern Afghanistan when an insurgent posing as an Afghan National Army soldier opened fire on troops assigned to Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan at Camp Shaheen, Mazar-e-Sharif: Navy lieutenant, mom admired by everyone.

Lt. Choe was serving as a medical administration and logistics mentor to the Afghan National Army. Her home duty station was the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, where she was born. She had volunteered to serve in Afghanistan.

She is survived by her husband, Lt. Cmdr. Chong "Jay" Choe, a urology resident at the medical center; and her 3-year-old daughter. More here: Navy Lt. Florence B. Choe, 35, El Cajon; killed by Afghan soldier.
