Civilian Contractor from Arkansas Dies in Iraq

OCTOBER 23, 2006 - Posted at 7:54 a.m. CDT

 

CAMDEN, AR - An insurgents' bomb has taken the life of a Camden man working in Iraq for a private company as a police trainer.  Officials say 58-year-old Brian M. Brian was killed yesterday when the military convoy in which he was riding was struck by a bomb.

Brian died at about 11:30 a.m. Iraq time near the city of Rustamiyah, outside of Baghdad.  He was working as an international police liason officer with DynCorp International.  Three U.S. soldiers also were injured when the improvised explosive device went off.

Brian, who worked for the Ouachita County sheriff's office from 1993 to 2005, had been in Iraq since June.  Dyncorp says that Brian was assigned to a team that was training and equipping the Iraqi police service.

DynCorp International, based in Falls Church, Virginia, is a services and project-management company serving civilian and military government agencies and commercial clients worldwide.
