Sol­dier from Bowie killed in ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent in Kuwait

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND ARTS -

A sol­dier from Bowie who was de­ployed as part of the bat­tle against the Is­lamic State died in a non­com­bat in­ci­dent in Kuwait on Thurs­day, the Depart­ment of De­fense said. Spc. Ron­ald L. Mur­ray Jr. is the third per­son from Mary­land to die dur­ing a mil­i­tary de­ploy­ment this year. He was as­signed to the 4th Bat­tal­ion, 1st Field Ar­tillery Reg­i­ment, 3rd Ar­mored Brigade Com­bat Team, 1st Ar­mored Di­vi­sion, based at Fort Bliss, Texas. Mur­ray, 23, who worked in fire sup­port, was killed in a ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent, Fort Bliss spokesman Gil Telles said. “He was an out­stand­ing sol­dier with an in­fec­tious smile, and sense of hu­mor that would brighten any room,” Col. Robert E. Lee Magee, com­man­der of 3rd Brigade Com­bat Team, said in a state­ment. “He will be missed by his fam­ily, his fel­low soldiers and his com­mand.”

Hard freeze ex­pected early Sun­day morn­ing

A wide­spread frost is fore­cast across the Bal­ti­more re­gion early to­day, and a hard freeze could fol­low Sun­day morn­ing. The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice has is­sued a frost ad­vi­sory from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. to­day. Lows are fore­cast in the lower to mid-30s along the In­ter­state 95 cor­ri­dor, and around or be­low freez­ing to the north and west. The frost ad­vi­sory is in ef­fect for Anne Arun­del County, Bal­ti­more City, south­ern Bal­ti­more and Har­ford coun­ties and the east­ern half of Howard County. In the rest of the re­gion, in sub­urbs at higher el­e­va­tions north and west of the city, freezes have al­ready ended the grow­ing sea­son, so no more ad­vi­sories will be is­sued. A freeze watch is in ef­fect for early Sun­day morn­ing for those ar­eas where the grow­ing sea­son is on­go­ing. Lows are ex­pected in the up­per 20s to lower 30s.
