President Joe Biden arrived at Dover Air Force Base on Sunday to honor members of the military killed in a suicide bomb attack during the evacuation of civilians from Afghanistan last week.
Biden and first lady Jill Biden also attended the “dignified transfer” of the fallen troops while at Dover Air Force Base, a military ritual of receiving the remains of those killed in foreign combat.
The dead soldiers ranged in age from 20 to 31, and came from California and Massachusetts and states in between.
They 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 that he would stay safe.
