The Defense Department says a soldier from northeast Kansas has died after his patrol came under fire in Afghanistan.

The soldier was identified Monday as 35-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Forrest W. Robertson, of Westmoreland. The Pentagon says Robertson’s unit was attacked Sunday by small-arms fire in Afghanistan’s Logar province.

Robertson was assigned to the Headquarters and Headquarters Troop of the 6th Squadron, 8th Calvary Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division based at Fort Stewart, Ga.

Sen. Jerry Moran, of Kansas, said in a statement that Robertson’s wife and children live in Hinesville, Ga., and his mother lives in Westmoreland, northeast of Manhattan.
