The Army identified the Special Forces soldier killed in Afghanistan Tuesday as a Green Beret from Virginia.

Sgt. 1st Class Joshua “Zach” Beale, 32, was shot and killed during combat operations in Central Afghanistan’s Uruzgan Province. He was assigned to 3rd Special Forces Group based at Fort Bragg, N.C.

“Joshua was a smart, talented and dedicated member of 3rd SFG [Airborne] and the special operations community,” Beale’s commander, Col. Nathan Prussian, said in a statement. “He will be greatly missed by everyone who had the fortunate opportunity to know him. We extend our deepest condolences to his family for this tragic loss.”
