Young Wilton native dies doing what he thought was best for his country
Flags fly at half-staff Tuesday as Wilton remembers 19-year-old United States soldier, Nick Madaras. A month short of returning home, Madaras was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq over the weekend.
Nick?s family says he joined the Army to do what he thought was best for his country. He had just graduated from the Army?s basic training a few months ago and was scheduled to return home in October. Madaras was killed just three days after his twentieth birthday when his HumVee was hit by a roadside bomb.
Friends and family say before joining the Army, the 2005 Wilton High graduate loved spending his time playing soccer, especially giving his time to coaching younger kids. He was also very close to his family including a younger brother and sister.
Nick will be remembered by friends and family as a person that gave everything to those around him, including his country.
