It was the last photo she took that caused her death.
In 2013, member of the US Army Spc. Hilda Clayton was taking photos during a training when a mortar tube exploded.
Clayton was killed in the eastern Laghman province together with four Afghan National Army members including a photographer she was training.
Little did she know that the photos of the explosion she took would also end her life.
The final photo Clayton took was earlier released by the the US Army and a tribute was given to the late Army in an issue of the Military Review journal.

The tribute says:
“Not only did Clayton help document activities aimed at shaping and strengthening the partnership but she also shared in the risk by participating in the effort. Clayton’s death symbolizes how female soldiers are increasingly exposed to hazardous situations in training and in combat on par with their male counterparts.”
