Baghdad, Iraq. Lambert was struck by a stray bullet fired during what was believed to be a celebratory event by local nationals.
From Lisa Sanchez 10/06/06:

PFC James I Lambert - He wasn't even supposed to be there...he was supposed to be on KP duty. Lambert just happened to win a basketball challenge and got out of his duty...and just happened to be sitting on a chair outside the motor pool when he just slouched over. Who shoots bullets up into the air to celebrate?!
