From staff reports

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- A soldier who fatally fell from a rooftop Tuesday while performing guard duty in Mosul was identified Thursday as a 101st Airborne Division soldier from American Samoa.

Spc. Farao K. Letufuga, 20, was assigned to the division's Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3rd Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment.

Letufuga, from Pago Pago, American Samoa, entered the Army in September 2001 and arrived at Fort Campbell in March 2002.

Letufuga, who was single, is survived by his mother and father, both of Pago Pago.

Eighteen soldiers from the Fort Campbell-based air assault division have died while participating in Operation Iraqi Freedom since the division deployed in February to Iraq.

The Army has not released what date Letufuga's body will be brought to the United States.

His death remains under investigation.
