The Pentagon says two Fort Carson soldiers were killed over the weekend in Iraq.

Both were assigned to the Third Armored Cavalry Regiment.

Twenty-two-year-old Specialist Hoby Bradfield Junior of suburban Houston was shot Saturday while searching an area in Tal Afar.

Twenty-six-year-old Private First Class Eric Woods of Omaha Nebraska died also died Saturday. He was trying to evacuate a wounded soldier when his vehicle struck a bomb and overturned.

At least 61 soldiers from Fort Carson have died in Iraq.

Army officials said Bradfield was born in Pensacola, Florida, and that his wife and mother live in different states outside of Texas.

Bradfield was at least the 159th Texas service member to have died in Iraq since the war began in March 2003.
