MESA, AZ - A member of the armed forces from Arizona was killed Friday in Afghanistan, according to The Department of Defense.



Spc. Wyatt J. Martin, a 22-year-old Mesa resident, was one of two men killed when an enemy attacked their vehicle with an explosive on Dec. 12, 2014.



He was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom in the Parwan Province.



Martin and fellow soldier Sgt. 1st Class Ramon S. Morris from New York were assigned to the 3rd Engineer Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division of Fort Hood, Texas.



It was "just like you see on the movies," Martin's mother, Julie, said of learning of her son's death. "The two guys show up at the door... I just said [to them], 'Don't start talking, don't say a word.'"



"He told his sister this summer... 'If something happens to me, know [that] I went happy,'" Wyatt's father, Brian, said.



Wyatt's parents said he joined the Army because he wanted to give back. After his time in the Army, Wyatt planned to go to Michigan State University and then become a fish and game officer, his parents said.



Julie shared a picture of Wyatt fishing in the family pool when he was a young boy.



She said her son loved the outdoors.



Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has ordered that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Monday in honor of Martin.
