Kayenta, Ariz. - Staff Sgt. Jonathan D. Davis, of Kayenta, Ariz. died Feb. 22 in Afghanistan in the Helmand province while conducting combat operations.

Davis was assigned to Headquarters Battalion, 32nd Georgian Liaison Team, Regimental Combat Team 7, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif.

"The Navajo Nation mourns the loss of a warrior who gave his life defending freedom," Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly said. "We are saddened by the loss of our warrior and we offer our prayers to the family during this difficult time. Staff Sgt. Davis was a valued member of the Kayenta community and often remembered for helping to bring home two state high school basketball championships in late 1990s. His presence will be missed."

Shelly ordered the Navajo Nation flag be lowered from sunrise Feb. 26, through March 1, and again on the day of his funeral service.

According to the Navajo Nation Veterans Department, Davis is the 13th Navajo member of the armed forces to be killed in action in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I AM VERY SADDEN TO HEAR OF JONATHAN'S PASSING. I USE TO WORK IN ONE OF HIS CLASSES AT MVHS. I DID NOT KNOW HIM PERSONALLY BUT I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR OUR CHILDREN THAT ARE OUT FIGHTING FOR US. AND IT HURTS WHEN YOU HEAR THE NEWS THAT ANOTHER SON OR DAUGHTER WAS KILLED IN ACTION. MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE MOTHER , HOW YOUR HEART MUST FEEL LIKE IT WAS RIPPED OUT FROM YOU. YOU WILL BE IN MY PRAYERS.
