Military Hopes to Return 3 Fallen Ohio Soldiers Together

     COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Military officials say they want the remains of three Ohio soldiers killed in Afghanistan flown back into the state together from Delaware's Dover Air Force Base. Maj. Gen. Deborah Ashenhurst of the Ohio National Guard said Today (Tuesday) that officials aren't sure when they'll return to Ohio the remains of 36-year-old Capt. Nicholas Rozanski of Dublin, 45-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Rieck of Columbus and 44-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Shawn Hannon of Grove City.

The soldiers were killed in a suicide bomber attack Wednesday in Afghanistan.    Ashenhurst said the soldiers were working with the Afghan National Army to transport radios.

At least four more members of the same Ohio unit were injured.
