U.S. military attack helicopter

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.

    He’s fighting for himself. He’s shown zero proof of fighting for anyone else.

    tRump is living proof that intelligence, honesty, integrity, and decency is not inherited from your parents. He is none of the above.

    Blah blah blah. You should start writing fiction because you’re real good at it, although not convincing.

    Sure he did. Ask the 250,000+ dead of Covid about it, ask those assinated for Putin’s bounties about that. Ask over half of the population what THEY think. Never mind, we told you when we voted.

    Of course he’s silent about it. It didn’t happen directly to him, or in his pants, so he’s not aware of it.

      Trump has always been a loser. It goes back to the days when he was a draft-dodging coward with a phony medical excuse.
      Cadet Bonespurs has always been a yellow coward.

    tRump is too busy worrying about how to pull a coup on the American people who voted him out to stay in “power”. He doesn’t give one whit about causing over 250,000 deaths to covid, you think he cares about a few more?

        By not fulfilling his responsibilities as commander-in-chief. There was a White House Pandemic office when he got there, and he disbanded it immediately so he could use that money for salaries for his molestation victim, Ivanka, and her gay husband, Kushner. Try to keep up.

          What would a bloated, overpaid government department have done any differently? Would they have brought a vaccine to market in RECORD time? Would they have developed therapeutics that brought the mortality rate down to essentially ZERO. Would they have enacted policies that made the excess mortality rate NEGATIVE?

            Save your breath. The left has already sold that stupid “blame Trump for all the Covid deaths” rhetoric to the gullible voters.

            Joggin’ Joe, who is 100% bought and paid for by China, Russia and Ukraine will deliver on his markers until he tips over from senility in his first year.

            This was the same department that contained Ebola. They could have done the same for covid due to that experience. But no, since Obama was involved in setting the department up and supported it, Donnie had to kill it.

        Negligence and abdication of his duties as President. That’s how.
