More West Virginia deaths have been reported in the Iraqi War.

The death of a West Virginia National Guard soldier was announced as another soldier was being buried in Mingo County this week.

Sgt. Dee Talbert, 24, was killed in Iraq this week when a roadside homemade bomb went off, destroying the Humvee he was riding in.

Three other soldiers with the 150th Armor Company were injured in the incident.

A National Guard spokesperson said "Sgt. Talbert and the others are heroes. They've shown their commitment to make the world a better place."

The 150th is headquartered in Beckley and was deployed to the Middle East last October.

A military policeman who was killed last week in Iraq was laid to rest Thursday at Pie, Mingo County.

Army Spc. Danny B. Daniels II, 23, of Varney was killed in Baghdad July 20 when his patrol vehicle came under attack by small arms fire and hit an improvised explosive device, according to a Defense Department news release.

Bubby, as everyone referred to Daniels, had been in the Army since 2000. He was assigned to the 630th Military Police Company, 793rd Military Police Battalion, 89th Military Police Brigade in Bamberg, Germany.

Friends and family say he was an avid angler and hunter who loved the mountains as much as the United States.
