US serviceman killed in Afghanistan

A U.S. service member was killed during combat operations Monday in Afghanistan, according to military officials.

Officials with Resolute Support and U.S. Forces-Afghanistan provided no other details surrounding the death of the U.S. service member.

Twenty American troops have been killed in Afghanistan in 2019 during combat operations.

This has been one of the deadliest years for U.S. forces in Afghanistan since the U.S. scaled down combat operations and kicked off the train and advise mission known as Resolute Support in 2015.
