WASHINGTON, D.C. – The United States Army announced the deaths of five soldiers who were part of peacekeeping operations with the Multinational Force and Observers mission.
The soldiers died as a result of a UH-60 helicopter crash, Nov. 12, 2020, in Sinai, Egypt. The incident is under investigation.
The deceased are:
Capt. Seth Vernon Vandekamp, 31, from Katy, Texas.
Chief Warrant Officer 3 Dallas Gearld Garza, 34, from Fayetteville, North Carolina
Chief Warrant Officer 2 Marwan Sameh Ghabour, 27, from Marlborough, Massachusetts
Staff Sgt. Kyle Robert McKee, 35, from Painesville, Ohio
Sgt. Jeremy Cain Sherman, 23, from Watseka, Illinois
The five American soldiers who died were in service of our country as a part of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in Egypt.
President-elect Joe Biden said about the tragic crash, “I extend my deep condolences to the loved ones of the peacekeepers, including 6 American service members, who died on Tiran Island, and wish a speedy recovery to the surviving American. I join all Americans in honoring their sacrifice, as I keep their loved ones in my prayers.”
Donald Trump did not react in any way to the news of the fallen American soldiers. The Commander-in-Chief did, however, tweet baseless conspiracy theories about his loss in the recent election (306-232 Electoral Vote, 6+ million votes) and the low ratings of Fox News.
