A 1st Armored Division soldier killed in Iraq on Dec. 19 has been posthumously promoted, a spokesman for the division said Wednesday.

Andrew P. Daul, 21, of Brighton, Mich., who was killed by a makeshift bomb in Hit during combat operations, has been promoted from specialist to sergeant, said Maj. Wayne Marotto, a 1st Armored Division spokesman.

Daul was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 37th Armor Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, based in Friedberg, Germany.

He was the seventh soldier from his battalion to die in combat in Iraq since deploying in January.

His father, Michael Daul, told a Michigan newspaper that his son will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery.

A memorial for Daul has been scheduled for Jan. 8 at 4 p.m. in the Ray Barracks chapel in Friedberg.
