    Soldier from Salem dies in Afghanistan bombing


    A US Army medic from Salem was killed by a suicide bomber
    in Afghanistan Wednesday, his brother said.
    Army Sergeant James A. Ayube Jr., 25, died of injuries
    suffered on patrol in Kandahar Province, his brother
    Alexander Ayube, 24, said in a phone interview from the
    family’s home last night. He said the military told the family
    of his brother’s death late Wednesday.
    Alexander Ayube said his brother, who had served previously
    in Iraq, had six months left on his tour.

    He said his brother’s wife was at Dover Air Force Base in
    Delaware last night to identify the fallen soldier’s remains
    and have them brought to Salem. He said she had requested
    to make the first public statements in memory of her husband,
    possibly today.

    “We’re all exhausted,’’ said Alexander Ayube. “We were up
    all night getting information.’’

    His brother graduated from Salem High School in 2003, he said,
    and later earned a degree from Bunker Hill Community College in Boston.

    Fallen soldier remembered as hero, ‘lion’

    The Casket of Army Sgt. James Ayube, who was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan, is brought to the grave site for the burial at Harmony Grove Cemetery yesterday.

    Army Sgt. James Ayube may have been “accident-prone,” singeing his hair at one point with a lighter, his 17-year-old sister jokingly remembered.
    But “all he wanted,” Ashleigh Ayube said, “was to fix the world.”
    So it was fitting that he became a combat medic, even though it was a profession that ultimately cost him his life.
