WASHINGTON - A Fort Campbell soldier was killed
in Iraq on Wednesday, the Department of Defense announced.
Army Spc. Brett T. Christian, 27, of North Royalton, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb, was killed in Mosul when his convoy came
under attack by rocket propelled grenades.
Christian is one of 10 Ohio soldiers killed in Iraq since the war started March 19, according to the Defense Department.
Christian was assigned to Company C in the 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry, 101st Airborne Division.
