FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) — Fort Carson is holding a memorial service for three servicemen killed in Afghanistan.

Air Force Maj. Walter D. Gray, Army Maj. Thomas E. Kennedy and Army Sgt. Maj. Kevin J. Griffin will be honored Thursday at the infantry post outside Colorado Springs.

They were killed Aug. 8 when insurgents detonated suicide vests.

Gray was 38 years old and from Conyers, Ga. Kennedy was 35 and from West Point, N.Y. Griffin was 45 and from Laramie, Wyo.

Griffin and Kennedy were assigned to the 4th Brigade Combat Team, part of the 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson.
