MANCHESTER, N.H. — Army Rangers from Fort Drum, N.Y., have honored one of their fallen comrades with a rugby match against his hometown team in Manchester, N.H.
The May 21, 2011, game was played in memory of Staff Sgt. Kyle Warren, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on July 29, 2010. Members of Manchester’s Amoskeag Rugby Club organized the memorial match, which was played at Livingston Park.
The match featuring her late husband’s former hometown team and former Rangers brought back good memories, Sandra Warren said. Adam Rowe of the 10th Mountain Division Barracks Rangers Rugby Football Club said friends and colleagues were enjoying the day “like he would want us to.”
The rugby match served a fundraiser for the Wounded Warriors Project, an organization dedicated to helping injured soldiers.
