A U.S. Army Soldier from Montgomery County has been killed in Afghanistan.

Officials said Dustin Gross, 19, was killed by a roadside bomb.

He graduated last year from Montgomery County High School in Mount Sterling.

Once the school was notified, counselors were brought in to the high school.

The soldier's family released this statement to ABC 36 News:

"We love and are very proud of Dustin, this is very hard for us.  We appreciate all the prayers, love and support from our family, friends and the community.  We just need to mourn our loss in private at this time."
