Wisconsin Rapids native dies in airport attack in Afghanistan

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A Wisconsin Rapids native has died in Afghanistan. The Pentagon said 39-year-old Army Sergeant Matthew Leggett died Wednesday after he was attacked near Kabul's airport.

A relative said Leggett was born in Wisconsin Rapids, and his father grew up in nearby Nekoosa before moving to Texas. Leggett's most recent address was listed as Ruskin, Florida.

He enlisted in the Army in 1995, and was based at Fort Bragg in North Carolina since 2012.

He served three tours of combat duty, and had won numerous awards -- including a Purple Heart for being wounded.
