Fallen Green Beret remembered as a soldier, father, friend
By: The Associated Press  


AGAWAM, Mass. — A Green Beret from Massachusetts killed during combat operation in Afghanistan last month was remembered at his funeral not just as a soldier, but as a father, friend and loving fiance.

Master Sgt. Luis DeLeon-Figueroa was laid to rest Tuesday at the Massachusetts Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery in Agawam, shortly after a funeral service at Bethany Assembly of God Church.

His 9-year-old daughter, Angie, moved mourners to tears when she read a letter to her father that said "Dear Papi, thank you for being a great hero and a great daddy. Thank you for defending our country and for always loving me."
