The Pentagon has identified the four U.S. soldiers killed in an attack on the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.

Killed were:

— 30-year-old Spc. William R. Moody of Burleson, Texas;

— 21-year-old Spc. Ember M. Alt of Beech Island, S.C.;

— and 21-year-old Spc. Robert W. Ellis of Kennewick, Wash.

Moody, Alt and Ellis served with the 68th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 43rd Sustainment Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, Fort Carson, Colo.

Also killed was 25-year-old Sgt. Justin R. Johnson of Hobe Sound, Fla., who was assigned to the 10th Transportation Battalion, 7th Sustainment Brigade, Fort Eustis, Va.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the Tuesday attack. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said Wednesday the militants fired two rockets into the Bagram Air Base late Tuesday. American officials confirmed the base was attacked by indirect fire — likely a mortar or rocket — with four U.S. troops killed.
