It regards Private Pahnke, the young man killed by sniper fire on the 17th in Baghdad.
He died at the 501st Forward Support Battalion Aid Station. Those are our guys.
I know they are just heartsick they couldn't save him.
A soldier assigned to the First Armored Division died of a gunshot wound from enemy gunfire early this morning in the Northwest section of Baghdad.
The soldier, taking part in a patrol, was sitting in a military vehicle, when he was struck in the back by a small caliber bullet at about 11:50pm (local).
The patrol leader immediately secured the area and a combat medic began first aid to the wounded soldier. The patrol then transported the soldier to a nearby military compound where he was transferred to a ground ambulance and transported to the 501st forward support batallion aid station where he later died.
