Army Ranger Kristoffer Domeij Killed In Action During 14th Deployment
 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)

Killed during his fourteenth deployment on Saturday, Kristoffer Domeij
served more than any other Army ranger who died in action, KOMO-TV
reports.


Domeij enlisted two months before September 11 and continued fighting
for his country, nearly nonstop, from that moment. Though Army rangers
typically complete one four-month tour, this Lacey, Wash. native served
48 months in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.


"This was a ranger you wanted at your side when the chips were down,"
battalion commander, Lt. Col. David Hodne told the news outlet. "He is
irreplaceable - in our formation and in our hearts."

  • That is a true "Hero". He was on the battlefield putting HIS life on the line (literally) so that the other 400 million Americans can live the "free" lives that they do. (Yes, I consider Canada part of that "group")

    RIP Ranger! You did well.

    • @SARTeam I consider Americans family, just as much as i consider any fellow Canadian family. We're one and the same.

      I respect any and all members that currently (and previously) serve in the Canadian/American armed forces. Without them we would simply be a mess, like many war-torn places overseas.

  • i'm reminded of this poem, written by a war hero in the 1st world war.

    this is for you, Kristoffer, may God bless your resting soul.


    Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
    Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
    Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs
    And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
    Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
    But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
    Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
    Of tired, outstripped Fiv More..

  • War Hero! Fighting for freedom unlike the locals fighting for a free-ride. Get a clue! Fight for your country not against it. You that occupy nothing occupy nothing.

  • If you take alot of chances, nomatter what side you are on, you will eventualy loose the game. Many afghans have been to war since 9/11 and tooke their chances too.

  • So he served for 4 years in total. Nothing special. There are many guys her in the UK and USA who have completed just as many. I met a guy who has completed 4 tours, each lasting one year. Which is the same duration as the ranger, but it sounds less impressive. Many guys who fought in Vietnam completed multiple year long tours. But nonetheless, RIP.

    • @betiostripe You fucking CUNT! IN TOTAL IT IS THE SAME!! I have a friend who has served 4 tours of Afghanistan, each lasting 1 year. Thus, whether you served 14 torus lasting 3-4 months or 4 tours lasting 1 year each, both amount to the same overall active duty time. Understand?

    • @betiostripe What does this have to do with serving your country? Firstly, no one 'serves' their country anymore, but merely the corporate elite who wish to strip a foregin land of anything and everything. Secondly, unless you have served with the likes of the parachute regiment's pathfinder platoon, the royal marines mountain leaders and the SAS/SBS, all of which are way beyond 'basic line unit's' and exceed the skill of the rangers, then you need to sit down and shut up.

  • 14 deployments? Was he volunteering to keep going back there? What is it that makes people do this?

  • I wonder how many total months that is?? Because Marines have 7 month tours but from what I know Army has 1 year long sometimes longer. Since 9/11?? Doesn't add up?? But still must have YEARS under his belt. That's true commitment. It's tough to re-enlist after knowing the pain of being wounded. Damn shame.
