FORT STEWART, Ga. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Defense has announced a Georgia-based soldier has been killed in Afghanistan during his fifth deployment.

Officials say 35-year-old Sgt. First Class Forrest W. Robertson, of Westmoreland, Kan. died Sunday from wounds he sustained when his unit was attacked in the Logar province. The area is about 70 miles south of Kabul.

Robertson was based at Fort Stewart, Ga. and was assigned to the 3rd Infantry Division.

Fort Stewart spokesman Kevin Larson says Robertson joined the Army in July 1996 and has been awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor.
