A US Army sergeant died of wounds suffered in Iraq, the Pentagon announced Tuesday. The death brought to 2,000 the number of U.S. military members who have died since the start of the Iraq conflict in 2003. Staff Sgt. George T. Alexander, Jr., 34, of Killeen, Texas, died Saturday at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, of wounds suffered Oct. 17, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle in the central Iraqi city of Samarra, the Defense Department said.
