A Floyd County solider with the National Guard, has been killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

21 year old Jeffery W. Jordan was killed Thursday during a deployment with the 108th, which is part of the more than 2,000 members of the Macon-based 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team who are spending a year supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

Jordan grew up in Armuchee and was a current resident of Cave Spring, and employed as a correctional officer at the Floyd County prison.

Jordan was one of three soldiers killed in a town called Kapsia, which is just north of the capitol city of Kabul – according to information, Taliban insurgents attacked their vehicle with a roadside bomb and followed up with small arms fire.
