PACE, Fla. — Three soldiers, including one from Florida, died in Iraq when their unit was attacked by enemy forces, military officials said Friday.
Sgt. Daniel L. McCall, 24, of Pace, died Tuesday in Baghdad, the Department of Defense said. His unit was in Salman Pak, Iraq, when it was attacked with small fire arms and bombs, according to a statement from the military.
Also killed were Pfc. Rush M. Jenkins, 22, of Clarksville, Tenn., and Pvt. Cody M. Carver, 19, of Haskell, Okla. All three were assigned to the 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Benning, Ga.

The 2001 graduate of Pace High School was known as a good athlete.
“He did all the church functions with us and was a great all-around person,” his friend Jeanna Kay Woodhall told the Pensacola News Journal. “He wasn’t just good at sports. He was good at everything. And he always thought the Army was the best thing that ever happened to him.”
