On Sunday, August 29, bodies of the 13 US service members killed Thursday, August 26 in Afghanistan by an ISIS-K terror attack, were flown to Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, where US troops who have died in Afghanistan have been buried the last two decades. Eleven Marines, one Army soldier and one Navy corpsman died, along with nearly 200 Afghans. Five of the dead came from California. The rest hailed from Indiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming The fallen service members were killed while supporting non-combat operations in Kabul, Afghanistan after the Taliban swept into Kabul this month, taking over control of the Aghan government. Joe Biden, his wife Jill Biden, alongside military commanders welcomed the corpses and payed their last respect to the fallen heroes even as their family members and relatives watched in agony. After the private meetings between Biden and family members of the slain, Biden witnessed what’s known as a dignified transfer, as flag-draped cases containing human remains were unloaded from the back of a cargo plane. Before the transfer began, Biden walked up the ramp into the plane to pray. He was joined by the first lady, Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley and other military leaders. More photos below. The post Joe Biden, US military, and family members pay last respect as bodies of 13 troops killed in Afghanistan airport attack return to the U.S. (photos) appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
