    U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Edwin Deedrick, Jr., commanding general, 1st Special Forces Command (Airborne), presents the U.S. flag to Tabitha Farmer during the funeral for her husband, U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jonathan Farmer, in Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Virginia, April 9, 2019.

    Farmer joined the Army on March 30, 2005 and graduated in 2007 from One Station Unit Training at Fort Benning, Georgia to become a Special Forces engineer sergeant. He earned his commission as a Special Forces warrant officer in 2016 and after graduation for the basic Special Forces Warrant Officer Course, was then selected to serve as an assistant detachment commander.

    Farmer had previously served five combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, before deploying to Syria in early January 2019. Farmer died of wounds sustained during an attack while conducting a local engagement in Manbij, Syria, January 16, 2019. Also killed in the attack were U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Shannon Kent, and Defense Intelligence Agency civilian Scott Wirtz.

    His spouse, Tabitha Farmer, received the U.S. flag from his casket, and folded U.S. flags were presented to his four children and parents.
