Report Of US Soldier’s Death

I know it is Saturday and I only post one article for the day…but there are exceptions and this is one of those times….the death of a US soldier in Iraq……

I report of these incidents because the MSM usually does not and most Americans could care less….but as a vet I care!

As word spread of the death of Brian P. Odiorne, of Ware, while stationed in Iraq with the Army, family and friends took to social media to express their grief over the life ended too soon.

Odiorne, a 2014 graduate of Pathfinder Regional Vocational Technical High School in Palmer, was killed in Al Anbar province on Monday. The death, according to the Department of Defense, was not combat related, but details of how he died have not been disclosed.

Odiorne, 21, joined the Army in October 2015, and was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, Texas, since May 2016. He was trained as a cannon crew member.

His death remains under investigation by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, according to officials.

I wish his family and friends my condolences….may his spirit find peace and know that his sacrifice is appreciate and mourned….he did his duty and not much more could have been asked of him…..

May He Rest in Peace.

  1. Sad to hear of this soldier losing his life.
    It was actually well-reported here on the BBC. They showed footage of the US artillery units in action near Mosul airport, using SP guns to support Iraqi army attacks. They didn’t name the soldier, but stated that he had died in a ‘vehicle accident’. The BBC reporter was right up at the front, and gave the report wearing a kevlar helmet and body armour, as shells were being fired all around him. He later moved closer into the city to report on the fierce resistance from IS. They also showed footage of IS drones being used to land explosives on Iraqi armoured vehicles too. With great success, worryingly.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. US media show none of this….we seldom hear about deaths in the nightly news….that is why I feel someone has to let people know….might as well be me….chuq
