Another US Soldier Dies!
I hate that I must write these types of posts!
More sad news….I reported on Monday about 2 troops that were killed in Iraq.
Now news comes out that a US soldier was killed in Eastern Afghanistan….name is withheld until the family is notified….
One U.S. service member from the Utah National Guard was killed Wednesday during an operation against Islamic State forces in eastern Afghanistan, according to a statement from the Utah National Guard.
Approximately seven U.S. and Afghan forces were also injured in the operation, and were medically evacuated, according to a statement from Operation Resolute Support.
Identification of the service member was pending notification of next of kin, the military said.
“My heart aches for the loss and sacrifice of our members and their families,” Maj. Gen. Jefferson Burton, adjutant general of the Utah National Guard, said in a statement. “I know that what we do is dangerous and important work for our country’s defense, but this realization does little to console me during times of loss such as this.”
