FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) -- A Fort Carson soldier involved in using Facebook to tell the wife of another soldier that her husband was killed in Afghanistan has been reprimanded.
Army officials say Ariell Taylor-Brown of Mobile, Ala., learned of her husband's death through a chain of three soldiers and a Facebook message. Next of kin are supposed to be informed in person by uniformed personnel.
An Army spokesman said Friday the soldier who told Taylor-Brown was reprimanded. Officials haven't said whether the other two soldiers face any action.
Taylor-Brown's husband, Staff Sgt. Christopher Brown of Columbus, Ohio, was killed April 3 by an insurgent bomb.
Taylor-Brown has said she got a Facebook message asking her to call someone immediately. It wasn't immediately clear whether the person she called was the soldier who was reprimanded.
