A Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier was killed Thursday when his vehicle rolled over in Afghanistan.

Spc. Anthony A. Paci, 30, was serving with 1st Battalion, 17th Infantry Regiment in Gereshk in the southern province of Helmand, the Pentagon announced Saturday. Two other soldiers were injured in the incident.

Paci is the 22nd soldier – and the first since November – from his battalion to die since it deployed as part of 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division in July. Thirty-four soldiers from the brigade have been killed.

The Rockville, Md., native enlisted on October 20, 2004, and trained as an indirect fire infantryman. He deployed to Iraq in 2005-06 with a unit from Fort Hood, Texas. He arrived at Fort Lewis on May 10, 2007.
