Praetorian Standard Inc of Fayetteville identified the men slain Thursday as Walter D Fisher of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Jason D Landphair of Fayetteville, North

Carolina; and Mathew E Fineran of Summerville, South Carolina.

The release issued yesterday by Thomas Lujan, an attorney for the company, says another employee, Bradley A James of Atlanta, was wounded but expected to survive.

The company says it's meeting with the men's families.

The Pentagon has said the three Defense Department contractors were killed at the Kabul airport by a man in an Afghan uniform.
