Cpl Benjamin Kopp of Rosemount, Minnesota began his Army career in 2006 where he served as a rifleman. Ben was serving his first tour in Afghanistan after already serving two tours in Iraq. He was injured on July 10 while serving in Afghanistan. He received treatment immediately in the field, but a loss of blood caused him to go into cardiac arrest on the operating table at the battalion surgical center. Ben was transported to Landstuhl, Germany and then to Walter Reed Medical Center where he died one week later. He is survived by his mother Jill Stephenson and his father Duane Kopp.
