Sgt Buddy James Hughie
Birth: Oct. 23, 1981
Carlsbad
Eddy County
New Mexico, USA
Death: Feb. 19, 2007, Afghanistan

Army Sgt. Hughie was assigned to 1st Battalion, 180th Infantry, Oklahoma Army National Guard, Ada, Oklahoma. Hughie died in Kamdesh of wounds suffered when his unit came in contact with enemy forces using small-arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades. Buddy and his unit were conducting a joint mission with the Afghan National Army and the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division in the Nuristan Province when the group came under attack by the Taliban. After two Afghan soldiers in the group were wounded, he left his position to provide medical assistance when he was shot and killed. Buddy didn't have to deploy with the 180th because he had deployed to Afghanistan in 2002-2003 with an engineer unit from South Carolina. He volunteered to deploy because he believed in the mission. The 180th deployed to Afghanistan last summer as part of a multinational task force whose mission is to train and mentor soldiers in the new Afghan National Army. Members of the 180th Infantry are providing security for the international coalition of trainers and the Afghan trainees. Buddy was one of those soldiers that you did not have to worry about - he always did the right thing. He leaves behind his wife, Alexis and infant son. Alexis took Buddy to her hometown for burial. On Buddy's web page he had listed: Heroes all the fallen soldiers who have gave their life for their country.
