My heart goes out to the family and friends of Sgt. 1st Class Matthew L. Leggett, 39, of Ruskin, Florida who died August 20 in Kabul, Afghanistan. This brave American soldier died of injuries he received when he was engaged by the enemy as he was serving as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
Sgt. Leggett was assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, XVII Airborne Corps, from Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
I hope that it is some comfort that Americans share the family and friend’s loss.
