Earlier this month, three men of the 5th Special Forces Group (Army Airborne) out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky deployed to help keep peace in the country of Jordan. On Nov. 4th, as the country was focused on the up-coming election, 27-year-old Staff Sgt. Matthew C. Lewellen, of Lawrence, Kansas; 30-year-old Staff Sgt. Kevin J. McEnroe of Tucson, Arizona; and 27-year-old Staff Sgt. James F. Moriarty of Kerrville, Texas, died after the convoy they were in came under fire as it entered a Jordanian military base.
These men will never spend another holiday with their families.
