The Department of Defense says three Alaska-based soldiers have died in Iraq. The three died of wounds suffered Monday in Balad when insurgents attacked their unit using small arms fire. The dead include Michael Mayne of New York, Micheal Alleman of Utah and Zachary Nordmeyer of Indiana. All were assigned to the Stryker Brigade Combat Team at Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks.
