Tragedy earlier this week in Afghanistan
I just wanted to let you know that there hasn’t yet been any official notification regarding the identities of those who died in the incident that happened earlier this week in Afghanistan except the short note below which was received Tuesday. As soon as it is received though, it will be posted.
“DOD Statement on Five Casualties in Afghanistan
Statement from Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby:
“Five American troops were killed yesterday during a security operation in southern Afghanistan. Investigators are looking into the likelihood that friendly fire was the cause. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of these fallen.”
