Biden honors fallen soldier


Vice President Joe Biden, center, and Army Secretary Eric Fanning, right, stand as an Army carry team moves a transfer case containing the remains of Pfc. Tyler R. Iubelt at Dover Air Force Base, Del., on Tuesday. Iubelt was one of four Americans (two soldiers) killed in Afghanistan last Saturday when a Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up at Bagram Airfield.  More info

Tyler is the grandson of my cousin Cathy. I didn’t really know him personally, just the family.  Tyler lived with his wife and infant daughter in Du Quoin IL when he enlisted in the U.S. Army just one year ago next week.

  1. I am very sorry for your family’s loss, and the loss to our nation of another young hero. God bless him and all of you. Good on you, Vice President Biden.


  2. This is what breaks the heart. Not the election, not the protesters, not Trump. But a young man that has lost his life fighting for the Freedom of many Nations and returning home in a wooden box. So sorry for your Family Jonco, and for America.
