In November 2005, he transferred to Charlie Troop, 1st Squadron 73rd Airborne Cavalry. He bravely fought during two deployments. Nick passed away Monday, Sept. 10, 2007, while participating in combat operations in Iraq.

As a member of C Troop 1-73 Cavalry, Nick had also served in support of Hurricane Katrina and deployed twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Sgt.
