During Ferguson riots, 2 Americans killed in Afghanistan fighting for our freedom

Freedom isn't free. And the fight for it continues even as ungrateful Americans riot.

From Leada Gore on
The entire country knows Michael Brown's name.

They probably don't know the name Wardell Turner. Or Joseph Riley.

On Monday night, even as Ferguson, Missouri erupted in violence, two American soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. The two soldiers - one black, one white - were killed fighting for the freedoms to march, to assemble, to speak out and to protest.

The Pentagon has yet to confirm the names of the soldiers, but families of both men have spoken to the press.
Turner was a native of Maryland, Riley was from Ohio. May they rest in peace.
