Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

Paul was my wife's kid brother, A former member of the 82nd Airborne, A 20 year Ct state trooper, EMT and most recently, was deployed to Panjshir province as a Police trainer for a DOD contractor.

He was killed in an ambush by a Afghan officials bodyguard while on duty.

Thanks

Island EMT, my condolences to your entire crew and extended group.

When you say killed in an ambush by an afghan officials bodyguard, are you saying he was working with Karzais brother who was just killed?

Prayers and thoughts from the Ruffems family.

Thank you to all of you for your thoughts.

We just returned home tonight from a very long & trying 10 days since were informed of his death.. Paul was laid to rest in the veterans cemetery yesterday.

He was working as a Law enforcement trainer in Afghanistan, training their police officers in how to be a good officer and how to do criminal investigation work.

He was ambushed along with another member of the team while traveling in the province.
