Arkansas Sailor Killed in Iraq

OAK HARBOR, MI - A Navy petty officer from Arkansas is the sixth member of a bomb disposal unit to be killed in Iraq.

Kevin Bewley, 27, of Hector died Monday of wounds from a bomb that detonated in Sala and Din Province.  He was on his second deployment to Iraq.  Bewley's father Ron Duke Bewley says his son had a good personality and was always sympathetic to people.

Three sailors from the same unit were killed in April, and two were killed in July.
