CARLISLE — The U.S. Army says a Carlisle man assigned to Fort Benning in Georgia was among a group of four soldiers killed during an attack in Afghanistan.

The Department of Defense on Tuesday said 25-year-old Sgt. Patrick C. Hawkins was killed Oct. 6 when enemy forces attacked his unit with an improvised explosive in the Zhari District of Kandahar Province.

Hawkins was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. Also killed in the attack were 24-year-old Pfc. Cody J. Patterson of Philomath, Ore.; 25-year-old 1st Lt. Jennifer M. Moreno of San Diego, Calif.; and Sgt. Joseph M. Peters, 24, of Springfield, Mo.
