FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) — Fort Carson is honoring two soldiers killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan last month.

Soldiers are gathering at the post near Colorado Springs on Friday for a memorial service for Staff Sgt. Benjamin G. Prange of Hickman, Nebraska and Pfc. Keith Williams of Visalia, California.

Both were members of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, the last combat brigade from Fort Carson serving in Afghanistan. They were killed in Kandahar Province on July 24.

Prange was in his third tour of duty in Afghanistan but it was the first for Williams.
