That sounds like the incident that took SSgt Vitagliano in Ramadi.
He was a scrolled and tabbed 75th NCO who if I remember right he volunteered to deploy with 1/503rd PIR from Korea to Iraq.

He was also Gulf War vet with the USMC from 1991.

There was a huge VBIED near a building during a cordon and search. It seemed like the whole building was wired up at first.

A soldier who survived said Sgt Vito pushed him away from vehicle and saved his life.

I apologize for stepping on your memorial and Blue Skies to your friend.
