Gov. Mike Pence says Hoosiers everywhere are mourning the loss of a northern Indiana soldier who was among six U.S. service members killed after a helicopter crashed in southern Afghanistan.
Pence said today that "it is with deep sadness" that he learned of Williams' death. He says, "Jesse Lee Williams is an American hero whose service and sacrifice will never be forgotten by the people of this state and nation."
It's not clear yet when Williams' funeral will be held. He's survived by his mother, a 6-year-old daughter, and the daughter's mother.
