Two more 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team soldiers were killed in Iraq earlier this week, bringing the total to seven the number of deaths suffered by the Fort Benning-based unit since its arrival in the Baghdad area last month.
The Department of Defense has yet to release the names of the soldiers, their battalions or the cause of death. Family members must be notified before public identification of casualties.
More details will be published as soon as they become available.
