Military as a family business: Part II

As stated before, our line of work can run in families - and everything that comes with it.
The son of the new Dutch armed forces commander has been killed by a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan.

The blast, early on Friday in Uruzgan province, also killed another Dutch soldier and wounded two more.

Lt Dennis van Uhm, 23, was the son of Gen Peter van Uhm, who took up overall command of Dutch forces on Thursday.

A total of 16 Dutch troops have now died in Afghanistan. Friday's attack is not thought to have specifically targeted the new military commander.
Note the time line.

Hat tip Outlaw Mike.
