For me this death was worthless and should have never been allowed to happen…..over the weekend another American soldier was killed in Afghanistan and 2 others wounded…..
The wounded troops are being treated and are in stable condition, officials with the Resolute Support mission said in a statement.
The incident is under investigation.
The name of the service member killed in the incident will not be released until family members are notified, officials said.
Saturday’s incident marks the first U.S. troop death in Afghanistan in more than two months.
Spc. Gabriel Conde, 22, was killed April 30 as a result of enemy small arms fire in eastern Afghanistan, officials said at the time. Another soldier was wounded in the same incident.
Sad news and IST wishes the family well in their time of sadness….and we thank them for their service to the country.
Please take a moment of silence for this family.
Sadly until the Congress grows a spine reports like this one will be ever present.
