Army officials Thursday released the identity of the latest Fort Richardson soldier killed in Iraq. Officials say Staff Sergeant Jamie D. Wilson was killed Monday by enemy small-arms fire while on guard duty at his base near Fallujah. The 34-year-old San Diego resident was an infantryman who joined the Army in June 1990.

Wilson was assigned to Fort Richardson in September 2005. Officials say no other paratroopers were injured in the incident. Next of kin have been notified.
