Latta Statement on Deaths of U.S. Servicemembers in Afghanistan

Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH5) released the following statement after the deaths of American servicemembers in a suicide bombing attack in Kabul. The Pentagon has said that 12 servicemembers were killed in the blast and 15 were injured.

“We have lost 12 American servicemembers in today’s suicide bombing in Kabul. These troops represent the best our country has to offer. They stood their ground at a Kabul Airport gate to help get Americans out of the country and to safety – even in the face of immense danger. There are no words to express the anguish we feel as a nation today.

“These servicemembers are heroes. May their sacrifice never be forgotten.”
