(Conyers-AP) -- Two Georgia men were killed in a suicide bombing attack in Iraq this weekend. Officials released the names of U.S. Army privates Diego Fernando Rincon and Michael Russell Creighton Weldon Sunday.
Rincon, from Conyers, and Weldon, from Palm Bay, Florida,were among four U.S. soldiers killed near the city of Najaf Saturday when a bomber -- posing as a taxi driver -- pulled up to an Army roadblock, waved to American troops for help, then blew up his vehicle as they approached.
Rincon and Weldon were based at Fort Stewart in Hinesville. Also killed were 23-year-old Corporal Michael Curtin, of Howell, New Jersey, and 24-year-old Sergeant Eugene Williams, of Highland, New York. All the soldiers were part of the Army's First Brigade, Third Infantry Division. Curtin went through basic training at Fort Benning.
Friends of Rincon -- a 2001 graduate of Salem High School -- remember him as a high-spirited person who was active in cheerleading, gymnastics and drama while in school. Weldon's friends and family could not be reached for comment.
An Army soldier was killed when his Bradley Fighting Vehicle rolled off a cliff in Iraq, military officials said Sunday. Defense Department officials say Sergeant Roderic A. Solomon of Fayetteville, North Carolina, died Friday in a "non-hostile" accident.
The 32-year-old was assigned to the 27th Infantry, 3rd Infantry Division out of Fort Stewart, Georgia.
