The U.S. military says two attackers shot and killed an American soldier and wounded another as they were guarding a propane gas station in Baghdad.
A witness says the gunmen approached the squad of troops at the station on foot and shot the soldiers from close range. The attackers reportedly ran to a waiting getaway car and escaped.
The soldier is the second American killed this week in Baghdad, as hit-and-run attacks on U.S. forces continue.
I can find no mention of locale of this incident and thus cannot speculate as to if this might be a 1st Brigade soldier.
But we do seem to own the worst real estate in Baghdad.
