The sister of a Minnesota marine says her brother has been killed in Afghanistan. Jolyn Means says the marines told her family Sunday night that her 23-year-old brother, Lance Corporal Dale Means, was killed by an improvised explosive device in southern Helmand Province.

Means enlisted in the marines about two years ago. His sister says he "wanted to do something important in his life."

Means graduated from New Prague, Minnesota High School in 2007 and married a classmate last year. Dale and Andrea Means lived off-base at Camp Lejeune, N.C. The Department of Defense says Means was assigned to Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, Marine Expeditionary Force.

Funeral Arrangements are pending.
