Army Spec. Ryan P. Jayne was killed by an improvised explosive device in Paktia Province in Afghanistan. He was 22 years old. The young soldier had been at his home Campbell, New York on leave and just days ago returned to the war torn nation. This was his second deployment.
Jayne graduated from Corning High School and attended briefly Corning Community College. He was the eight young soldier from that area to die in either Iraq or Afghanistan.
