Ninetieth Indiana soldier dies

Military officials say another Indiana soldier has died.

Twenty one year old Army Pfc. Willard M. Kerchief III died Thursday after being wounded during combat operations in Iraq.

The Evansville native suffered wounds from enemy small arms fire in Taramiyah.

His family says Kerchief graduated in 2005 from Evansville's Reitz High School after attending Bosse High School for three years and had been deployed to Iraq in April.

Kerchief is the 90th member of the military from Indiana to die since February 2003 after being sent to the Mideast for the war in Iraq.
