Two Wisconsin Soldiers Die in Iraq


Two Wisconsin soldiers have recently died in Iraq.

Sergeant Andrew Bossert, 24, of Fountain City was killed Monday. He was at a checkpoint when a car went through and blew up.

Bossert enlisted in the army five years ago after graduating from Fountain City High School. He was assigned to an engineering company and was shipped to Iraq last August.

On Friday, Donald Eacho, 38, was killed in Iraq when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb. He grew up in Kenosha and lived in Watertown, New York with his wife and two sons.

Before going to Iraq, Eacho was awarded the Soldier's Medal, one of the army's highest honors for heroism outside of combat. The award was for his rescue of a little girl and her grandfather who were trapped in an overturned car.
