Specialist Nicholas K. Rogers died October 22, 2006, when his convoy was am­bushed in Baghdad, Iraq. While under heavy small arms and rocket-propelled gre­nade fire, Specialist Rogers moved to his M240B machine gun and began suppressive fire. His actions allowed the pinned-down members of his platoon to move into posi­tion, achieve fire superiority, and suppress the enemy attack. Specialist Rogers served as a combat medic with the 4th Battalion, 31st Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division out of Fort Drum, New York, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was buried with full military honors at Deltona Memorial Gardens in Deltona, Florida.
