LAS VEGAS - Metro Police Officer and Nevada Army Guardsman Sgt. 1st Class Charleston Hartfield is among the fatalities reported at the Route 91 Harvest concert Sunday evening in Las Vegas.
Hartfield, 34, was a soldier in the 100th Quartermaster Company headquartered in Las Vegas.
Brig. Gen. William Burks, the Adjutant General of the Nevada National Guard, said losing any member of the Guard family is difficult, especially in such an unexpected manner: “Charleston Hartfield lived to serve the public and protect his family, he is the epitome of a citizen-soldier.”
“Sgt. 1st Class Hartfield epitomizes everything good about America,” said Brig. Gen. Zachary Doser, the commander of the Nevada Army National Guard.
Hartfield leaves behind a wife and two children.
