    Default Another Loss for the Fire Service and Country

    Bergen County firefighter, Marine is killed serving in Afganistan

    By The Star-Ledger Continuous News Desk

    WESTWOOD -- A nine-year member of the Westwood Fire Department serving in Afghanistan that was scheduled to return home in May was killed in action Thursday, a report on NorthJersey.com said.

    Sgt. Christopher Hrbek, 25, was serving with the Marine Corps when he stepped on an IED in the Hamal province, according to the report. A 2002 graduate of Westwood High School, Hrbek was due to receive a bronze star for saving the life of his sergeant major who stepped on an IED last month. Hrbek was planning to become a drill instructor in the Marines.

    May you rest in peace.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.
