According to Oklahoma Army National Guard, Sgt. Mycal L. Prince, 28, of Minco, Oklahoma, died during an engagement on Thursday with insurgents in the Saygal Valley in Laghman Province, Afghanistan. Prince's infantry unit, Company A, 1st Battalion, 179th Infantry was on a dismounted patrol when insurgents attacked using rocket-propelled grenades and small arms fire. The Edmond-based unit is part of the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) and deployed to Afghanistan earlier this summer. "Sgt. Prince served his Nation and this great State for more than a decade with honor and distinction," said Maj. Gen. Myles L. Deering, adjutant general for Oklahoma. "He joined the Guard four days before his seventeenth birthday. I think that says a lot about the kind of man Sgt. Prince was. He deployed to help the people of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and went to Iraq in 2008. He could have gotten out of the service, but he chose to stay and serve his Country." Prince graduated from Ninnekah High School in 1997. He served as a police officer in both Minco and Alex. He also worked as a K-9 handler with the Minco Police Department before being deployed to Afghanistan in March 2011. Prince leaves behind a wife, Surana, and two young children. According to Oklahoma Army National Guard, 11 Soldiers from the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team have died in Afghanistan since July 29.
