Courtesy Story

KABUL, Afghanistan – Two U.S. forces-Afghanistan service members died in eastern Afghanistan today when an individual wearing an Afghan National Security Forces uniform turned a weapon on U.S. and Afghan forces.

It is USFOR-A policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the U.S. Department of Defense, who will release the names once next of kin have been notified.
