Iraq-Ft. Carson

Three soldiers attached to a Fort Carson-based unit are dead as a result of combat operations in Iraq.

The three were attached to Task Force Lightning, which was assigned to Fort Carson's Third Heavy Brigade Combat Team.

Their names have NOT been released.

Another soldier from the task force was injured in yesterday's incident.

It's NOT yet clear if Fort Carson is the home post of the four soldiers, or if they're from other posts attached to the task force.

Fort Carson officials say they have NO information on the deaths.

The troops are among nine soldiers and one Marine killed by roadside bombs and enemy fire Tuesday.
