US Troop Killed in Afghanistan and Two More Wounded: Pentagon Confirms

The Pentagon confirmed that one U.S. soldier was killed and two were wounded in fighting Tuesday in southern Afghanistan.

As of now, details on the battle are sketchy. What we do know from military news reports and information coming out of the Defense Department is that one American troop died as a result of wounds sustained during operations near Marja in Helmand Province while two others were wounded.

The Pentagon is withholding the identity of the service member killed in action to notify next of kin.

"We are deeply saddened by this loss," Brig. Gen. Wilson A. Shoffner, a spokesman for U.S. forces in Afghanistan, said in the statement.

"On behalf of General Campbell and all of USFOR-A, our heartfelt sympathies go out to the families and friends of those involved," he added, referring to Army Gen. John Campbell, commander of U.S. forces in the country.
