Three Fort Stewart Soldiers Killed in Iraq

Four soldiers and a Marine died over the weekend in Iraq. Three of those were 3rd Infantry Division soldiers: Pfc. Nicholas Riehl, Spc. Eddie Tamez and Pfc. David Kirkpatrick.

All died when an IED exploded near their patrol.

One hundred four US troops have died in Iraq since April 1, making it the deadliest month this year in Iraq.

A government report out Monday says attacks like this one are playing a big role in slowing the reconstruction process in Iraq, making the war funding issue even more timely.

The bill Congress passed is on the president's desk today.
