Sgt. 1st Class Reymund R. Transfiguracion, of Waikoloa, Hawai‘i died on Aug. 12 of injuries sustained when an improvised explosive device detonated near his patrol as he conducted combat operations in Afghanistan.

Hawaiʻi has lost a brave soldier who sacrificed his life serving his country. My deepest condolences to Sgt. 1st Class Transfiguracion’s wife and children, and his entire ‘ohana. Let our community come together to support them now and in the coming months.
