Afghanistan Crisis: The bodies of 13 soldiers who were martyred in the suicide attack in Kabul on 26 August reached the US on Sunday. President Joe Biden arrived at the airport to receive it. Earlier on Sunday, Joe Biden met in private with the families of 13 American soldiers killed in a suicide attack near Kabul airport. The mortal remains of American soldiers killed in the attack were brought to America from Afghanistan.
Bodies of American soldiers killed in a suicide attack near Kabul airport in Afghanistan were brought to Dover Air Force Base and Biden and his wife Jill Biden attended a military event during this time.
The American soldiers killed in the attack were between 20 and 31 years old. US soldiers killed include a 20-year-old Marine from Wyoming whose wife is about to give birth to her first child in about three weeks. Also included is a 22-year-old Navy Corpsman, who in his last conversation with his mother assured him that he would be safe. Five of the American soldiers killed in the attack were only 20 years old.
Biden said in a statement on Saturday, “The 13 soldiers we lost were heroes who sacrificed their lives for our highest American ideals and saving the lives of others.” Their bravery and selflessness have saved more than 1,17,000 people so far.” The families of American soldiers killed are also usually present in Dover on such occasions. Biden attended such an event for the first time as president.
