An unfortunate situation in this country, that celebrities and reality shows will get more attention than a US soldier dying in a foreign land, trying to protect American freedom.
The Daily Mail reports:
Army Specialist Etienne J. Murphy, a 22-year-old Army Ranger from Loganville, Georgia, was the soldier who died Friday in a vehicle rollover incident in northern Syria, the Pentagon said.
Murphy was an infantryman assigned to 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, which is based out of Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia.
Murphy was posthumously awarded the Army Commendation Medal.
Hopefully just enough people will stop and think about what US soldiers are out there doing in the world.
The Daily Mail adds that:
Two other American service members have died in Syria since US troops arrived there in 2016.
Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer Scott C. Dayton, 42, was killed by an improvised explosive device in northern Syria on November 24, 2016.
US Air Force Staff Sgt. Austin L. Bieren, 25, died from suspected natural causes while deployed to northern Syria on March 28.
