Family members say Staff Sgt. Joseph D’Augustine died in the Sangin district of Helmand province. The Defense Department has not announced the death.

The 29-year-old was assigned to an explosive ordnance disposal unit and was on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan.

A sister, Michele Kulesa of Mahwah, tells The Record newspaper her brother was due to come home in 15 days to attend the May wedding of another sister.

D’Augustine graduated from Waldwick High School in 2001. He wrestled and played football in high school.
