Names Of 2 Kansas Soldiers Going On DC Memorial

Associated Press - October 29, 2013 6:10 am

A soldier from Kansas is killed in Afghanistan this week in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Two Kansas National Guard soldiers who died in a suicide bombing in Iraq are being honored by the Defense Intelligence Agency in Washington.

The agency will add the names of Sgt. 1st Class Clayton Wisdom and Sgt. Don Clary to a memorial honoring those who have died in service while protecting DIA personnel.

Clary and Wisdom were killed in November 2004 while protecting a contingent of DIA staff and members of the Iraq Survey Group. The soldiers positioned their vehicle between a suicide bomber’s vehicle and the DIA staff vehicles traveling in a convoy in Baghdad.

The DIA memorial was created in 1988 and was redesigned in 1999.
