Army Sgt. 1st Class Ramon Acevedo Aponte, 51, of Watertown, New York

Aponte died in Rustamiyah, Iraq, on October 26, 2005 when an improvised explosive device detonated near his HMMWV.

SAN JUAN — The remains of a soldier killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq last month have been returned to his native Puerto Rico for burial.

The family of Army Sgt. 1st Class Ramon Acevedo Aponte, 51, planned a wake for him Monday in his hometown of Penuelas. He was to be buried the following day.

Aponte, who had nine brothers, and another soldier were killed Oct. 26 when a bomb exploded near their Humvee in Rustamiyah, Iraq, the Department of Defense said.

Both soldiers were assigned to the Army’s 3rd Forward Support Battalion, Division Support Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Stewart, Ga.
