USMC KIA In Afghanistan

Discussion in 'US' started by jumpinjarhead, Feb 21, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Department of Defense announced today the death of a Marine who was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

    Sgt. Jeremy R. McQueary, 27, of Columbus, Ind., died Feb. 18 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was assigned to 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.
     
  2. Sadly he's not the only one - I attended the 'dignified transfer' of 3 of your Marines the night before last (of which he was one). I will attend another tonight.

    Semper Fi.
     
  3. Many thanks for that and for your service. I have likewise had such times in my career--a sad honor.

    Stay safe.
