Local Marine unit reservist killed in Iraq

A U.S. Marine reservist from the Detroit area who was assigned to a Perrysburg-based division was killed in combat Thursday in western Iraq, the Department of Defense announced yesterday.

Sgt. Bryan K. Burgess, 35, of Garden City, Mich., died in Iraq's al Anbar province.

He was assigned to the Perrysburg-based First Battalion of the Marine Corps Reserve's 24th Marine Regiment of the Fourth Division.

Circumstances of Sergeant Burgess' death were not disclosed.

Capt. Tyson Dunkelberger, a Marine spokesman, said that information is no longer released because it aids the enemy in determining the effectiveness of its tactics.
