The Pentagon said 31-year-old Phillip Johnson, a native of Mobile, was stationed in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Military officials say the cause of the crash is still unknown. However, a witness says he saw a rocket strike the helicopter's tail.

Counting these most recent deaths, nearly 500 Americans have been killed in Iraq since the start of the war last March.
