So Much More Than a Transfer Case! (Part II)

I was able to find the name of the fifth Soldier killed in Iraq on Monday. His name is Robert Hartwick...and here is his story and his face.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A Hocking County solder was among the two Ohioans and five Americans who were killed Monday in Iraq.

Army Spc. Robert P. Hartwick, 20, of Rockbridge, Ohio, died when insurgents launched an attack on his base, according to the Pentagon. Hartwick was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 7th Field Artillery Regiment.

Hartwick graduated from Logan High School in 2009.

Killed were Spc. Emilio Campo, Pfc. Michael Cook, Pfc. Christopher Fishbeck, Spc. Robert Hartwick, and Pfc. Michael Olivieri.

The soldiers deployed to Iraq in November 2010. They were part of the 2nd Advise and Assist Brigade, supporting the development of Iraq forces and the improvement of civilian life in central Iraq.

Each of the soldiers had served less than two years and were on their first deployment.

Cook, 27, was from Middletown, Ohio, the Pentagon announced.
