Colorado Volunteer Killed in Afghanistan

Durango resident Tom Grams knew the risks when he went to Afghanistan to provide dental care in a remote part of the country. Those fears were realized last Thursday when Taliban rebels attacked the convoy that he was traveling with. All ten medical volunteers were killed.

Dylan Norton was one of Grams' closest friends in Durango. He says no one in town quite realized Grams' global impact, until this week.
