Capt. Joseph William Schultz, an Army Green Beret, was killed Sunday when an improvised explosive device hit his Humvee, his mother, Betsy Reed Schultz, told the Peninsula Daily News this morning.
Capt. Schultz was 36.
He will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington, D.C. His remains were being flown today to Dover Air Force Base, Del., where his mother and uncle, Port Angeles art gallery owner Bob Stokes, were to join them.
He grew up mostly in Sacramento, Calif., and graduated from the University of Oregon with bachelor's degrees in political science and economics.
Betsy Reed Schultz operated the former Tudor Inn bed and breakfast in Port Angeles and is past president of the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce, among her other civic activities.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. June 11 at Olympic Cellars, 255410 Highway 101. The service will be open to the public.
