Almost a month ago on August 26, 2021, 13 US Service members were killed in a suicide bombing at the Kabul International Airport in Afghanistan.
Among the 13 that were killed was Marine Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, 20 of Jackson.
Gen. Mohammmad Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for Afghanistan's Defense Ministry, said a "terrorist in an army uniform" opened fire on both local and international troops. Azimi said the shooter had been killed.
