Paul Johnson-Reuben Killed in Iraq

The news is devastating for a Minnesota family awaiting the fate of a former St. Louis Park policeman working security in Iraq. The FBI says one of the bodies found in Iraq recently was that of Paul Johnson-Reuben of Buffalo. His family says they held out hope for 16 months, but now are deeply saddened by the news. His family says he was adventurous, fun loving and his ever-present smile will be missed. They go on to say their hearts go out to other families grieving the loss of their loved ones taken in the same incident. Johnson-Reuben was 39 when the truck convoy he was escorting was ambushed 16 months ago by men in Iraqi police uniforms. He leaves behind two teenage twin daughters.
State Senator Mary Olson of Bemidji is expressing her condolences to the Reuben family. She says she has a son who is going to Iraq this summer, and he has three daughters who will be missing him
