FORT DRUM, New York — Military officials say a soldier from Texas based at Fort Drum in northern New York has died from injuries suffered in an attack in Afghanistan last weekend.

The 10th Mountain Division says 27-year-old Spc. Kerry Danyluk of Cuero, Texas died Tuesday at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany. Officials say he was wounded Saturday when enemy forces attacked his unit with small arms fire in Afghanistan's Logar province.

Danyluk was an infantryman assigned to the division's 2nd Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team. Danyluk joined the Army in October 2010. He trained at Fort Benning in Georgia and was based at the Army post until arriving at Fort Drum in March 2013. He started his second Afghanistan deployment last November.

Danyluk is survived by his mother and father.
