Biden to pay respects to US troops killed in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is embarking on a solemn journey to honor and mourn the 13 U.S. troops killed in the suicide attack near the Kabul airport as their remains return to U.S. soil from Afghanistan. Biden is traveling to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware for a “dignified transfer” movement. It’s a military ritual of receiving the remains of fallen troops killed in foreign combat. The dead include a 20-year-old Marine from Wyoming who had been expecting his first child in three weeks and a 22-year-old Navy corpsman who, in his last FaceTime conversation with his mother, assured her he’d stay safe because “my guys got me.”
