Six Ft. Bragg Paratroopers Die In Iraq.


Six paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne
Division at Ft. Bragg were killed on Monday when a bomb exploded near their
vehicles in Iraq.
Major Tom Earnhardt, a spokesman for the 82nd Airborne, says
it's the single largest loss of life in three years of combat by
the division.
The military had reported that six soldiers were killed when a
bomb exploded near their vehicles during a combat operation Monday
in Salahuddin province.
The six were among nine American soldiers who died in explosions
north of Baghdad in what's being called the deadliest single day
for U-S troops in Iraq in nearly a month.
