US Soldier killed in Ambush

The convoy, including a Bradley armored vehicle and two Humvees, was ambushed on its way to meet with a mayor and community leaders near Baghdad.

"Raymond's gun was the only one that was still working. He fought them to a bitter end," Henry White said.

The commander said White helped the convoy escape before being fatally wounded. His was the convoy's only death; two soldiers were wounded, as was an Iraqi interpreter, according to the Department of Defense.

"He always put others first," Henry White said.
Raymond White was last home on furlough in August. Henry White said his son talked then with pride about rebuilding Iraq.
