COLUMBUS, Ohio – The sister of one of the seven people killed in a suicide bombing at a CIA base in Afghanistan last week says her brother was proud of the work he was doing.

Scott Michael Roberson was a security officer for the CIA when the blast hit Dec. 30. The Ohio native leaves behind a wife who is expecting the couple’s first child.

Roberson’s sister, Amy Messner, says “He always said that if something happened to him, he would have no regrets.”

A memorial page on Facebook lists former Navy Seal Jeremy Jason Wise as another victim of the attack. The 35-year-old was working as a security contractor after leaving the Navy last year. A funeral for Wise is expected in the coming days.

The parents of Harold E. Brown Jr. say the State Department employee also died in the bombing. Brown is survived by a wife and three children.

The CIA is not releasing information about the victims, citing the sensitivity of their mission and other ongoing operations.
