The body of a Tucson soldier is back on U.S. soil. Sgt. Martin Anthony Lugo Junior is the second Tucson High graduate to die in the war in Afghanistan in the last month.

He was seriously wounded in a fire fight during a combat operation. Lugo enlisted in the army immediately after graduating from Tucson high school. This was his sixth deployment. He deployed three times to Afghanistan -- twice to Iraq. We hope to know more about funeral arrangements soon.
