U.S. Army Pfc. Patricia Horne enjoyed serving her country as a member of one of the Army's elite units.
Her mother, Betty Horne, told the Greenwood Commonwealth Monday that her daughter enjoyed military life so much that she planned to re-enlist.
Unfortunately, the 20-year-old serving at Bagram Air Base didn't get that chance.
The military did not immediately release a cause of death.
Horne was assigned to the 96th Aviation Support Battalion, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division.
