On Monday, the Department of Defense revealed the identities of three Army Reserve troops who had been murdered on Sunday at a United States military installation in Jordan.

The Biden administration said that the attack was carried out by a drone belonging to a militia that was supported by Iran. It was reported by the department that the attack resulted in the injuries of at least 34 other service members.

Specialist Breonna Alexsondria Moffett, 23, of Savannah, Georgia, and Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, 46, of Carrollton, Georgia, were among those who lost their lives. Specialist Kennedy Ladon Sanders, 24, of Waycross, Georgia, was also shot and died.

Two of the troops were women, and they were assigned to the 718th Engineer Company, which was headquartered at Fort Moore, Georgia. This company was a group of soldiers who had been trained to deploy at short notice in order to construct roads, landing fields, and protective earthen berms for the United States military.

Tower 22 is a remote desert logistical outpost in Jordan that is located in the northeastern portion of the country. It is located at the point where the borders of Syria, Iraq, and Jordan intersect.

The three individuals were assigned an assignment in Jordan. The Central Command of the Pentagon estimates that approximately 350 members of the United States Army and Air Force are stationed at the modest installation.

United States military personnel have been using Jordan as a launch point for operations for a considerable amount of time. Jordan is strategically placed near Iraq, Israel, the Palestinian entity of the West Bank, Saudi Arabia, and Syria. The average number of American troops stationed in the country is approximately three thousand.

The three individuals who were killed on Sunday were members of a specialized branch of the military that is frequently disregarded. This branch is responsible for delivering supplies, maintaining buildings, constructing roads, and performing other regular tasks while taking on the risk of operating in hostile area.

In social media posts, the families of the troops expressed their sorrow, and these posts were widely shared by friends and relatives of the grieving families.

“This is one of the saddest days of my life,” Specialist Moffett’s mother wrote in a message that she made on Facebook on Sunday. I will never be able to get rid of the anguish, and my life will never be the same again.

In the future, I will never have the opportunity to prepare your preferred dishes, we will never have the chance to speak on the phone, and I will never again see you pass through my front door.
