Two civil servants and a soldier were killed in Iraq Monday by a roadside bomb near Fallujah, the Associated Press reported today.
State Department employee Terrence Barnich, 56, was the deputy director of the Iraq Transition Assistance Office, which oversees reconstruction projects in Iraq. He was killed alongside a U.S. soldier and a Defense Department civilian employee working for the embassy in Baghdad. Two others were injured. The other victims have not yet been named.
On this day after Memorial Day, it reminds us all of the sacrifices being made by civil servants, as well as the military, to bring peace and stability to Iraq.
