Another soldier from Fort Carson has been killed in Iraq.
The Defense Department says 25-year-old Army Specialist Jared Kubasak was killed by a roadside bomb earlier this week.
Kubasak was from Rocky Mount, Virginia. Neighbors say he visited home as recently as last month to celebrate his birthday.
He was part of the Third Armored Cavalry Regiment, which has lost 67 soldiers in Iraq. In all, 153 troops from The Mountain Post have died in Iraq since the 2003 invasion.
