Cpl. T.J. Conrad, who grew up in the Roanoke Valley and graduated from Northside High School, was killed in Afghanistan on Thursday, his father said this afternoon.
Conrad, 22, was one of two American troops who was shot and killed by a man wearing Afghan military or police fatigues during a protest over the burning of Qurans on a U.S. air base, according to Tim Conrad.
It was basically an ambush, said Tim Conrad.
T.J. Conrad leaves behind a wife and 7-month-old son.

We should get out of there and let those animals eat each other!
My prayers are with them as well.
This makes me unbearably sad and furious at the same time.
These people just live to be outraged. The administration has apologized twice (I don’t even agree with once)...so pull our people out of that hell hole now. Let the chips fall where they may.

Is he dead now?
Has Barack Insane Obama called the families yet? Don’t hold your breath.
TJ was younger than my son but knew him from helping with the wrestling team. Prayers to the family
Prayers for him and for his family. May he rest in peace.
Another terrible sacrifice.
I hope the families of these two young heroes get up in Obozamma’s grill...
We can’t survive another “5” years of this fraud.
Prayers up for Cpl Conrad and his family and friends. RIP, hero.
It’s appalling that President POS has apologized to Karzai for burning Korans whether on purpose or by accident and has not DEMANDED an apology from Karzai for the wanton and purposfull murders of our two soldiers. If President POS plans to reduce our nuclear arsenal, let it be done by carpet bombing Karzai’s shithole and the savages that inhabit it.
RIP, Cpl. Conrad. Prayers up for you and all who love you.
Prayers of rhis fine young man and his family.
A sad and angry SueRae.
I’d like to be able to help them on a personal level. If you hear of any way to do this (a trust for his child or other family request, please let us know)
“Prayers for Corporal Conrad and his family. “
Indeed. Thanks, Kristinn.
Praying for this dear American soldier and his beloved family.
I spent the morning on the phone to many offices of Senators and Congressmen, expressing my outrage that our President apologized to the corrupt President of Afghanistan over the Koran burning. I told them that I live in Delaware, the home of Dover Air Force Base, where the bodies of these two Americans are being flown to, to be processed at the mortuary for shipment to their mothers, who have just received telegrams informing them of their sons’ deaths—FOR NOTHING!!
I told them it is time to stop all funding for Afghanistan theater operations, to declare victory, and to bring the boys home—NOW!! Not in 2014.
I told them that that hellhole of a country, Afghanistan, is not worth one more American limb, one more American life, one more American dollar.
Our SOB “Resident” has purposefully stuck us in our collective eye again. He should be booed and protested everywhere he goes, without let up, by protestors.
The Conrad family and the family of the other soldier have now been forced into a hell on earth with the loss of their sons. And over what—the burning of the printed pages containing the absurd bastardized religious writings of an insane, blood-thirsty pedophile?
This was the war that Obama said he could win if given the chance. He has shown he is not worthy of the title of either President or of Commander in Chief.
If Freepers feel the same way, you must make the calls yourselves on Monday to your representatives—it is time to stop the insanity in Afghanistan. Bring the boys home before more telegrams have to be sent to more beleagured families of soldiers in Afghanistan combat zones.
Because two weeks after we leave, the Taliban will be in control anyway. And I hope that the drug running useful idiot Karzai is strung from a tree by them, like he deserves.
Islam is not a religion; it is a death cult. And it is feeling a resurgence of power worldwide. It respects nothing except overwhelming force, and history of the last 1400 years shows us that is the only thing that checks its relentless bloodfilled march.
I will not surrender my Christianity or my culture to Islam.
With all that said, I give my condolences and prayers to the family of Cpl. Conrad and the other murdered soldier, and my thanks to them for the costly sacrifice they have laid upon the altar of American freedom. God bless and keep them.
So, so sad. Prayers for Corporal Conrad, family and friends. :(
This fine young man wasn’t killed in Battle, he was murdered in Cold Blood.
“Killed” is just another vague PC term.
So terribly sad. Prayers for Corporal Conrad and his family. May Our Lord give them comfort.
Two of my daughters graduated from Northside.
President POS (great name, by the way) has fueled the fires by apologizing TWICE. Instead of pointing out that the korans needed to be burned as they were defiled by writings, he has again shown his contempt for America and again, gotten on his knee for muslims.
