Dead US Soldier Found on Southern Border

A serviceman was found dead on the US border while participating in border patrol operations. This is the second soldier to die there in unknown circumstances. Fox News reports:

A military service member assigned to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border has been found dead in southern Arizona — the second to die there this month, authorities say.

The service member — who has not been identified — was found Sunday near Ajo, according to a statement from officials at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo. Foul play is not suspected in the death, which is under investigation, officials added.

President Trump has assigned several thousand troops to the southwest border in recent months to support the U.S. Border Patrol.

The service member’s body was found 22 days after U.S. Army Pfc. Steven Hodges was found dead on federal land near Nogales, the Tucson Sentinel reported. Hodges was also assigned to the Southwest Border Support Mission.

Are cartel thugs murdering US troops, who often don’t carry guns in the Continental US since they are prohibited by federal policy? The Southern border remains a dangerous frontier, and will likely require more and better equipped troops to fully secure it against drug lords.
