Aldine Graduate killed in Iraq

The Department of Defense announced last week that a local airman, Tech. Sgt. Walter M. Moss, Jr. 37, was killed in a roadside explosion in Iraq.
Moss was a 1990 graduate of Aldine high school, as was his wife Georgina. They have 2 children, and lived in Mountain Home, Idaho. His parents were Walter Moss, Sr. and Rebecca York.
Exact details of the incident were not available, but Moss was a specialist in detecting and defusing bombs. It is thought that his death was related to activities in that field.

Moss was a veteran of Operation Desert Storm. He joined the military right after high school at Aldine. Moss and his family have travelled extensively over the years.
The family expects burial to be at Houston National Cemetery, but arrangements were not final at press time.
