IED kills 3 airmen



The Associated Press



SALT LAKE CITY — Three airmen assigned to Hill Air Force Base, including one from Florida, were killed in Iraq after a car bomb exploded, the U.S. Air Force said Monday.



Tech Sgt. Timothy R. Weiner, 35, of Tamarac, Fla., Senior Airman Elizabeth A. Loncki, 23, of New Castle, Del., and Senior Airman Daniel B. Miller Jr., 24, of Galesburg, Ill., died in the blast Sunday near Baghdad.



All three were members of the 775th Civil Engineer Squadron's Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight.



They were trained to safely dispose of bombs and maintain safe passage for convoys on supply routes.



"It was similar to a car bomb in the road and they stopped to do what they normally do," said Marilu Trainor, public affairs director at Hill Air Force Base. "They were killed in action while performing their mission."



Weiner, who graduated from Piper High School in Sunrise, was expected to return to his wife and 16-year-old son in Utah in two weeks, family members told WFOR-TV in Miami.



Weiner loved computers and planned to retire in three years, the relatives said. He enlisted in the Air Force in 1990.



The casualties were the first for Hill Air Force Base during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The base is about 28 miles north of Salt Lake City. With about 5,000 military personnel, it is Utah's largest military installation.



"The loss of these airmen to Team Hill is a true tragedy to our organization, to our base and to the Air Force. Their commitment to the unit's mission and the Air Force was unparalleled. They each were great patriots," 75th Air Base Wing Commander Col. Scott Chambers said in a statement.



Hill Air Force Base is planning a memorial service Friday.
