Another heartbreak for Fort Carson as one more soldier from the post is killed near the Iraq-Syria border.

The Pentagon says the soldier was one of 2 killed when insurgents opened fire on their convoy with automatic weapons and rocket propelled grenades.

The other soldier was an Iowa National Guardsman who was attached to the 3rd ACR.

79 U.S. soldiers have died in the month of November ... the bloodiest month for coalition forces since the war began.

Fort Carson has lost 32 soldiers in Iraq.
