Former Romney aide killed in Iraq
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A former aide to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was killed by an IED attack while serving in Iraq this weekend.

Army First Lt. Andrew Bacevich, 27, was killed Sunday while on combat patrol in Salah Ad Din Province in Iraq. He worked as a legislative aide to then-Gov. Romney in 2004.

"I got to know Andrew as a legislative aide in my office, and before he left we met and talked about his plans," Romney said in a statement. "He was driven by a desire to serve, first as part of our team and then as a member of the military. His loss is a deep personal loss for me and for all of those who knew him."
