A double service is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Ledward Barracks chapel in Schweinfurt for two soldiers killed Sept. 27 in Balad.

Spc. Gregory Cox, 21, of the 1st Battalion, 77th Armor Regiment, died when his military vehicle was unintentionally run off the road by an Iraqi civilian vehicle. Sgt. 1st Class Joselito Villanueva, 36, of the 9th Engineer Battalion, was killed by a sniper while on duty at an observation post.

In addition, a service was held Tuesday in the Rose Barracks chapel at Vilseck for Sgt. Tyler Prewitt, 22, of the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Infantry Regiment. Prewitt died Sept. 28 in Landstuhl, Germany, of injuries sustained four days earlier in a rocket-propelled grenade attack against his vehicle in Baquoba.
