On the 28th of April I was notified by LTC Q (3rd Brigade Rear-D Commander) that our Brigade has suffered the loss of three soldiers from D/1-15 Infantry. The soldiers lost their lives while conducting combat operations in Iraq. The next of kin of our fallen soldiers have been notified. I ask you for your prayers for these Sledgehammer soldiers and their families.
