The military says another Fort Carson soldier has lost his life in Iraq.

The soldier was killed Saturday when a roadside bomb exploded near his Humvee outside Ramadi, about 60 miles west of Baghdad. He was a member of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, but his name has not yet been released.

He is the 19th soldier from the Mountain Post to be killed in Iraq since the war began and the 12th member of the 3rd ACR.

Another Fort Carson soldier was killed on Thursday. That soldier, from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, died from injuries he suffered when he apparently touched a live power line while clearing low-hanging wires over a highway.
