Fifteen soldiers from Fort Carson who were killed in Afghanistan last month will be remembered in two memorial services at the post.

Army Secretary John McHugh will attend the services Wednesday at the post near Colorado Springs, Colo.

One will honor eight soldiers from Fort Carson's 4th Infantry Division who were killed Oct. 3 when insurgents attacked two U.S. outposts.

The other will honor seven soldiers from the post's 4th Engineer Battalion who were killed in three incidents.

Fort Carson says 32 soldiers from the post have been killed in Afghanistan, and 255 have been killed in Iraq.
