The Pentagon has identified two U.S. soldiers killed Friday in Afghanistan. They are 33-year-old Sergeant First Class Will Lindsay of Colorado and 29-year-old Specialist Joseph Collette of Ohio.
Two defense officials tell CNN the service members died during a partnered U.S-Afghan Military operation.
The officials added that initial indications are that they were killed during a fight with the Taliban. Afghan troops were also killed in the incident.
This marks the third and fourth U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan this year.
