ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. – An Ashland City firefighter who was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve died Sunday from injuries sustained in Afghanistan.

Daniel Greer, who was deployed in January, was involved in an IED accident on Friday morning.

“Daniel has been a true hero, not only in serving his country, but in serving his community as an Ashland City firefighter,” Fire Chief Chuck Walker told The Ashland City Times.

Details of the accident and funeral arrangements were not immediately known.

Greer is the second Cheatham County resident to die in recent weeks while serving in Afghanistan.
