Death: Dec. 25, 2005
Baghdad, Iraq

Two soldiers based at Fort Stewart were killed in Baghdad on Christmas Day, the Army said Tuesday. Spc. Anthony O. Cardinal, 20, of Muskegon, Mich., died Sunday when a bomb went off near his vehicle during combat operations, the military said. Cardinal was assigned to the 3rd Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, as a fire support specialist. He had spent nearly a year in Iraq and was about to return to the U.S. and spend the rest of his two-year enlistment in Georgia, his family said. He and his wife, Amber, had recently moved to Fort Stewart with their two children, 19-month-old Mikel and 2-month-old Maylee. Also killed Sunday was Spc. Sergio Gudino, 22, of Pomona, Calif. The Army said he died when an explosive detonated near his tank. Gudino was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 64th Armor Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division. More than 100 3rd Infantry soldiers from Fort Stewart and Fort Benning have been killed in Iraq since the division was deployed to the country in January for a second tour of duty. Soldiers from the division helped lead the assault on Baghdad in 2003.
