US Military Confirms Killing of Soldier in Eastern Afghanistan

A US service member was killed during combat in Afghanistan on New Year's Day, which comes not long after the top USA commander in the country warned 2018 would be a risky year for USA troops deployed there.

The incident took place in the Achin district of Nangarhar. Two are in stable condition and are receiving treatment in a nearby medical facility. "I extend my deepest condolences to Sergeant Golin's family and friends during this very hard time, and my thoughts and prayers are with the soldiers injured in this tragic incident".

A US service member has died and four service members were wounded in eastern Afghanistan, according to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission. "The other service members have returned to duty".

One US soldier was killed and 4 more were wounded on New Year's Day in Afghanistan. He enlisted in the US Army a year later. Booker extended his condolences to Golin's family in a statement issued Tuesday.

Four other troops were wounded in the same combat engagement, the Army said in a news release.
