Bradley W. Marshall dies 'of wounds suffered from enemy indirect fire'

The Army on Tuesday identified two artillerymen who were killed last week in Iraq. One of them was from Arkansas.

Sgt. Bradley W. Marshall of Little Rock and Spc. Daniel F. Reyes of San Dieto died July 31 from wounds suffered from an indirect fire attack on Forward Operating Base Kalsu, Iraq.

Officials say there was a delay in releasing their identities because there was a difficulty in notifying some next-of-kin.

Marshall was 37 years old. He first joined the Army in July 1990 and later rejoined in March 2002. He was assigned to Fort Richardson, Alaska, in July 2006.

Marshall was assigned to Bravo Battery, 377th Parachute Field Artillery Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division.

Eleven other paratroopers were injured in the incident, one seriously. The other 10 were treated and returned to duty.
