Soldier with Lake George roots killed in Afghanistan combat

Friday, U.S. Rep. Scott Murphy (D-Glens Falls) released a statement on Osborn's death.

"My heart goes out to the family of Ben Osborn - This true American hero made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation, and we owe him our eternal gratitude."

State Sen. Betty Little (R-Queensbury) said the Senate observed a moment of silence Thursday in his honor - as occurred Friday at the Warren County Board of Supervisors meeting. Little said her "deepest sympathy" goes out to the Osborn family.

"Like so many others in our community, I want his family to know how grateful we are for his service and his bravery."
