As American troops are packing to leave Afghanistan by 31 Dec. 2014, they are still getting hurt and killed, sometimes in enemy attacks, such as the one that killed the soldier at link #1. The story says shrapney went into his head, so sad, with our strong helmets, but from this short story, I would assume it went into the brain from the front, where the face is uncovered. The troops wear ballistic glasses to prevent this, but this still leaves uncovered space. So sad. Story says he was injured July 23, 2013 and died in the USA in the last few days. God bless his family, and I thank him for his sacrifice and pray no more US troops are injured or killed in combat as they pack up to leave. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Another American soldier dies from injuries suffered in Afghanistan:
