Gunnery Sgt. Jonathan W. Gifford, 34, of Palm Bay, Fla., was killed with Price while they were conducting combat operations in Badghis province, Afghanistan.

Price was assigned to 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion, Camp Pendleton, Calif.

U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Zeeland, issued the following statement upon learning of the death of Price: "While the details are not clear, a hero from Holland has lost his life defending freedom. Let us all take a moment to remember Gunnery Sgt. Price's courage, dedication and commitment to freedom. And let us also hold his family in our hearts and pray for the loved ones he has left behind."



So very sad :( Prayers to his family.
