Pakistani American Soldier Dies in the Line of Duty

The Pakistani American community all across the United States joins their fellow Americans to mourn the death in Afghanistan of a Pakistani-American Muslim US soldier, Second Lt. Mohsin Naqvi.

Lt. Naqvi, was 26 years old and was in a group of five soldiers killed while on patrol Wednesday the 17th in Afghanistan. He had just been married about four months ago.

Lt. Naqvi enrolled in the Army Reserve a few days after the 9/11 attacks and later served in Iraq. When he returned from Iraq in 2003, he re-enlisted for active duty after earning bachelor's and master's degrees.

Lt Naqvi while he lived in Newburgh, NY, would be frequent visitor to the neighboring Connecticut. He had worked in CT in the past as well. The Pakistani American Public Affairs Committee (PAKPAC) joins with the larger community to show their respect to him and prays that the family can sustain this huge loss. Burial is planned in the Albany Cemetery in New York.
