Two Fort Stewart Soldiers were killed in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan Feb. 23.

The Department of Defense announced Feb. 24 that Sgt. Joshua A. Born, 25, of Niceville, Fla. and Sgt. Timothy J. ‘TJ' Conrad Jr., 22, of Roanoke, V.a., died while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

The two soldiers suffered gunshot wounds when enemy forces attacked their unit with small arms fire.

"Our condolences go out to the families of Sgt. Born and Sgt. Conrad," said a Fort Stewart spokesperson, according to a press release. "We are deeply saddened by their tragic loss."

Both Born and Conrad were promoted and awarded the Bronze Star Medal, Purple Heart, Combat Action Badge and NATO Medal.

They were serving on their first deployment.
