DOVER, Del. (AP) -- A special forces soldier from Delaware and stationed at Fort Campbell in Kentucky has been killed in fighting in Afghanistan.

Military officials said Tuesday that Warrant Officer Sean W. Mullen of Dover died Sunday in Lashkar Gah, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device.

The 39-year-old Mullen was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), at Fort Campbell.

Mullen attended Caesar Rodney High School and Delaware Technical and Community College before joining the Maryland National Guard in 1993. He enlisted in the Army in 1995 and trained as a special forces medic before completing warrant officer school last year.

Mullen, who was born in Allentown, Pa., is survived by his widow, Nancy, his parents and an older sister.
