Lance Corporal Jared Schmitz from Wentzville, Missouri was killed by an Islamist suicide bomber at the Kabul Airport on Thursday along with 11 fellow US Marines, a Navy corpsman, Army Soldier, and at least 160 Afghans.
This was made possible after Joe Biden withdrew US troops from Afghanistan, armed the Taliban resistance, and closed Bagram Air Force Base two months earlier creating a situation where remaining Americans were forced to flee the country from the unsecured Kabul city Airport.
