LAWTON, Okla. (AP) -- A 35-year-old soldier from Lawton has died in Iraq from wounds suffered when insurgents attacked her unit with rockets.

The Department of Defense says Staff Sergeant Lillian Clamens was one of two soldiers who died Wednesday.

The military said insurgents fired rockets on Camp Victory in Baghdad from a nearby abandoned school, killing Clamens and Specialist Samuel F. Pearson of Westerville, Ohio.

Family members in Omaha, Nebraska say Clamens was due to return to Homestead, Florida, next week. She was stationed there with the Army Reserve's 834th Adjutant General Postal Company.

Clamens, a 1990 Omaha Central High School graduate, served in the Army Reserve for 17 years. The military listed her residence as Lawton, Oklahoma.

Clamens was a full-time postal worker, and served as an administrative clerk for the unit. She was married with three children.
