Spc. David J. Goldberg was married for only three days before he left for Iraq. He had met Sarah South in January while shopping at a Wal-Mart where she worked. They were married in February. "Thank God for the telephone," said his mother, Dolly Goldberg. "They talked a lot and grew quite close. She''s devastated." Goldberg, 20, of Layton, Utah, was killed Nov. 26 in a non-combat accident in Qayyarah, Iraq. He was stationed at Fort Carson. Goldberg entered the Army in 2001 and served in Bosnia before he was discharged this year. He joined the Reserves after his discharge. "I asked him if he was scared, and he said, ''I can handle it.'' He was very good with his weapon and was very accurate," his brother Kevin Goldberg said.
