Barrasso Honors Life and Service of U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Rylee McCollum

On Thursday, August 26th, the United States lost 13 men and women in uniform. Eleven Marines, an Army soldier, and a Navy corpsman.  U.S. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming spoke on the floor of the Senate Monday about the life and service of U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Rylee McCollum who was one of the 13 service members killed in Afghanistan last month. Senator Barrasso said the 20-year-old McCollum, from Bondurant, Wyoming, was in Afghanistan on his first deployment.

Barrasso said that about an hour prior to his floor speech, he received a text and picture from McCollum’s widow, Gigi McCollum, informing him that she gave birth to Levi Rylee Rose at 2 am on September 13.

13 deaths that did not have to be. A botched withdrawal by a bumbling president. Certainly, you always remove the military first when you leave a hostile country! Ask yourself: are you and America better off than you were a year ago??? But hey–a least the mean tweets have stopped. RIP WARRIORS

You do realize that bidens “tough guy” drone attack against an ISIS-K leader (sounds made up) killed a USAid worker, and a group of children, right? Maybe CNN or msnbc didnt get around to it yet?

A tragic death that was unnecessary. The Biden Afghanistan fiasco was either treason, or utter incompetence. So what are you and your fellow repubs going to do about it, John? Sit on your hands again?

Biden needs to be impeached.

“Biden needs to be impeached”. For what? Cleaning up after past failed GOP duds that had no business in the White House? It’s past time to stop these idiotic conflicts around the world that we ALL have to pay for without choice.

I think everyone agrees it was time to get out. Stop with the deflection bs. When you do that you spit in the faces of our dead service members. The bumbling idiot Biden botched the withdrawal and cost lives and you know. I will call you out every time you lie and deflect. Pathetic!

You will agree with me that the US has the most advanced and sophisticated intel networks on the planet, right fred? In saying that, would you also agree with me that everything that occurred during and after the biden pull out fiasco was well known before it happened? So either team biden is complicit in allowing this to happen, or they are extremely incompetent.

Blinkin stated that there are still 100 Americans, now hostages, stuck in Kabul, but I believe it is much more. Youre welcome to blame the other guys, but biden is the president…is he not?

He needs to resign, take the 25th amendment, or be impeached.

I think your triggered FRED! How about you send flowers to the widow of LANCE RYLEE MCCOLLUM. You know for that baby girl born on September 13rd without a father.
