Capt. Cory Jenkins, a Brigham Young University graduate killed in Afghanistan in August, will have his name added to the BYU Memorial Wall during a memorial service Friday, Nov. 13, at 1 p.m. in the Memorial Hall on the east end the Wilkinson Student Center. The public is welcome to attend.

Robert C. Oaks, a retired U.S. Air Force general and a former member of the Second Quorum of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will deliver remarks during the service.

Capt. Jenkins served in Afghanistan as a physician assistant helping to stabilize and treat injured soldiers in the U.S. Army. He graduated from BYU in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in conservation biology and completed a physician’s assistant program at A.T. Still University.
