Area National Guard Soldiers See Action In Iraq

PA Soldiers First to Respond

Pennsylvania soldiers were first to respond to a coalition air strike that killed one alleged insurgent and injured two more Thursday night near Taji, Iraq.

Four armed Iraqi men were spotted placing an improvised explosive near an important intersection, according to the Multi-National Division in Iraq. The division called an air strike to the location.

Soldiers with the Pennsylvania National Guard's 56th Stryker Brigade Combat team were first to respond after the strike. The soldiers administered first aid to the two wounded Iraqis and took them for medical treatment and interrogation.

The man killed in the strike was turned over to local authorities for identification.

Soldiers didn't find the fourth alleged insurgent in the area.

National Guard troops from the Bradford Armory are members of the team.
