FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A 21-year-old soldier based here was killed over the weekend in Iraq, the Department of Defense announced July 9.

Spc. Roberto Causor Jr. of San Jose, Calif., was killed July 7 after a bomb went off near his patrol in Samarra, military officials said.

Causor was an automatic rifleman with the 2nd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, with the 82nd Airborne Division based at Fort Bragg.

He joined the Army in August 2004 and reported to Fort Bragg in February 2005.

Capt. Buddy Ferris, commander of C Company, 2nd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, said Causor will be missed.

“Spc. Causor epitomized the words of courage, selfless service and honor; he was a paratrooper that represented all that is great about America,” Ferris said in a statement.
