FORT BRAGG, N.C. — The deaths of three 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers were announced
on Memorial Day, hours after ceremonies were held on and around their Army post to remember
other soldiers who died in combat.
The paratroopers from the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team died Saturday from injuries
sustained when a bomb detonated while they patrolled in Iraq’s Salah ad Din province.
The division identified the victims as Cpl. Michael J. Jaurigue, 20, of Texas City, Texas; Sgt.
Clayton G. Dunn II, 22, of Moreno Valley, Calif., and Cpl. Gregory N. Millard, 22, of San Diego.

parents, Jose N. and Juana N. Jaurigue, of Texas City, Texas.

joined the 82nd in September 2005.

Bernardino, Calif.; his father, Roy D. Dunn; his mother, Aminta Dunn, of Moreno Valley, Calif.; and
