Pvt. Gardi Gardev March 07, 2005 Bulgarian says coalition troops likely killed soldier
Not reported as "friendly fire"
Gardev was killed when he was shot southeast of Diwaniya, Iraq, on March 4, 2005. The Bulgarian defense ministry says Gardev's patrol had fired warning shots to stop an Iraqi civilian car when it received heavy fire from the direction of a U.S. Army communications facility 150 meters (165 yards) away.
Associated Press SOFIA, Bulgaria A Bulgarian soldier killed last week in Iraq was likely shot by troops of the U.S.-led coalition, Defense Minister Nikolai Svinarov said Monday. The result (of the investigation) gives us enough grounds to believe the death of Pvt. Gardi Gardev was caused by friendly fire, Svinarov told reporters. He said a Bulgarian patrol was approached by a civilian Iraqi car Friday. The car did not stop after the patrol gave a signal and the servicemen fired warning shots in the air from the north. Shortly after the warning shots were fired, the patrol became the target of massive fire from the west, where a U.S. Army communications site was located about 150 yards away, Svinarov said. Initial reports had said Gardev was killed in a shootout with insurgents near the central Iraqi city of Diwaniya.

Pfc. Kyle Gilbert of Brattleboro, Vt. both members of the 82nd Airborne Division were killed when they were caught in crossfire during an ambush Aug. 6, 2003, in Baghdad. “Why didn’t they tell us off the bat?” asked Sue Ritter, Hellermann’s sister. Gilbert was also killed by friendly fire, but his family members could not be reached for comment. Ritter, of Avon, Minn., said a soldier who was with her brother during the ambush was not allowed to tell them that Hellermann died by friendly fire. The soldier became a family friend because he is a fellow Minnesotan, and after he left the Army he was able to tell the family what happened, she said.

Melissa Hobart, the East Haven native who collapsed and died in June 2004, had enlisted in the Army in early 2003 after attending nursing school, and initially was told she would be stationed in Alaska, her mother, Connie Hobart, said. When her orders were changed to Iraq, Melissa, the mother of a 3-year-old daughter, fell into a depression and sought help at Fort Hood, Texas, according to her mother. "Just before she got deployed, she said she was getting really depressed, so I told her to go talk to somebody," Connie Hobart recalled. "She said they put her on an antidepressant." Melissa, a medic, accepted her obligation to serve, even as her mother urged her to "go AWOL" and come home to Ladson, S.C., where the family had moved. But three months into her tour in Baghdad - and a week before she died - she told Connie she was feeling lost. "She wanted out of there. She said everybody's morale was low," Connie recalled. "She said the people over there would throw rocks at them, that they didn't want them there. It was making her sad." Around the same time, Melissa fainted and fell in her room, she told Connie in an e-mail. She said she had been checked out by a military doctor. The next week, while serving on guard duty in Baghdad, Melissa collapsed and died of what the Army has labeled "natural" causes. The autopsy report lists the cause of death as "undetermined."

JAMES JENKINS 23 SAN DIEGO 10/1/2005 A Marine's fall from Iraq heroism Thursday, October 13, 2005 By KEVIN SHEA Staff Writer James Jenkins left Hamilton for the Marines in 2001 as a solid young man and citizen, his family and a former coach say. He was a Nottingham High School graduate, a star wrestler and talked of turning his military training into a career with the U.S. Secret Service. But something went terribly wrong. By all accounts, Jenkins was an excellent Marine. He'd served two tours of duty in Iraq with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, based at Camp Pendleton, Calif. And of the many awards that were pinned on his uniform, one was a Bronze Star with a combat V for valor. But the James Jenkins whose picture was plastered all over the news in the San Diego area two weeks ago was described as an AWOL soldier who'd gone on a violent crime spree with a stolen gun. He'd robbed, kidnapped and even tried to sexually assault a woman he had carjacked at gunpoint. Police said he was considered armed and dangerous - and possibly suicidal.
On Sept. 28, with federal agents at his fiancee's front door in Oceanside, Calif., Jenkins shot himself. He died six hours later at the age of 23.
Christopher Jerry, 22, died near the post Aug. 31,(05) two weeks after he was discharged. He had been assigned to the 2nd Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division.
