MARION, AR - A truck driver who lived in Marion who went to Iraq to help his country and improve life for his family was killed in a roadside attack.

Aaron Iversen, 38, died while on security duty for a private contractor.  The vehicle he was driving was attacked during the week, and an explosive that hit the windshield killed Iversen and another security worker.

Iversen grew up in Texas near Dallas, and his body is expected to arrive there Tuesday or Wednesday, accompanied by his brother Shane, who is also doing security work in Iraq.

Funeral plans are pending.

Iversen's wife, Sandra, is from West Memphis.  They had one child together and a child from a previous marriage.
