Another US Death

-All the Tweets and ranting about the deaths of US Troops in Niger, which was unnecessary deaths,another American was killed half way round the world in Afghanistan, Chief Warrant Officer Jacob M. Sims….

The Army warrant officer who died after a helicopter crashed in Afghanistan was a decorated veteran of numerous military tours who was born in Oklahoma and was currently living in Alaska, the Pentagon said in a statement.

Chief Warrant Officer Jacob M. Sims, 36, of Juneau, Alaska, died from wounds sustained in the crash on Friday evening in Logar Province, Afghanistan, the Defense Department said in a statement Sunday.

Six other crew members were injured in the incident but were receiving medical treatment, according to a statement Saturday by Operation Resolute Support in Afghanistan. The crash wasn’t the result of enemy action.

“Jacob lived by a creed that few understand and even fewer embody,” said Col. Philip Ryan, commander of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment or SOAR in a statement. “He will not be forgotten and his legacy will endure through his family, friends, and fellow Nightstalkers.”

  1. A death from an accident in a combat zone is no less important than being killed in action of course.
    The powers that be need to step up with better recognition for the steady flow of your soldiers who are being killed all over the world.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. To me, this is still KIA.
    I realize this is on Trump’s watch, but I did not hear so many complaints when Obama got elected and re-elected by saying he would pull out of that hell-hole (same ploy as FDR pulled by campaigning that no American would fight overseas!!) and he did nothing of the sort. I don’t care who is in Washington, as long as they pull our troops out of there – and Hillary sure wasn’t going to do that!!

      1. ‘m on a borrowed little notebook which makes it difficult to navigate – can you send a link? (it sounds familiar, but not sure).
