Private First Class Cody O. Moosman, 24, of Preston, died Tuesday, July 3, in Gayan Alwara Mandi, Afghanistan, when enemy forces attacked his unit with small arms fire.
The family provided the media with the following statement.
“Cody told us when he was in third grade that he wanted to be in the Army when he grew up, so he joined in 2010 at age 22. We think his experience as a Boy Scout helped prepare him for his role as a soldier.” Moosman reached the rank of Eagle Scout.
“He loved the idea of protecting his fellow citizens. Our family enjoyed watching him stand up for America. Cody loved the outdoors, and hunting and fishing were his passion. He leaves behind his mother and father, two brothers and two sisters, his grandparents and his nieces and nephews who all very much adored him.¬†We loved him, and we will miss him very much.” The family of Pfc. Moosman requests privacy at this difficult time and they ask for no contact by reporters, according to Department of Defense. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kan., according to a Department of Defense release.

    Our thoughts and prayers area with the family of Cody Moosman. Our son SPC Derek Boeka was part of Codys Squad in Afghanistan he will be part of the memorial service in Afghanistan. They were good friends at Fort Riley and at FOB Tillman. Our hearts are breaking for the family and for his fellow servicemen still in Afghanistan. Our prayers and God’s strength at this most tragic and difficult time…. Jeff and Chandra Boeka North Platte, Nebraska
