Veteran Receives Precious Item, Pentagon Looking into Marine’s Death, McConnell Warns China

TSA Returns Marine’s Necklace

Marine Corps veteran Aaron Bradley has a hollow bullet cartridge necklace that was made in honor of his service in the Middle East. The necklace was given to him by his fiance, which also included a love letter that she wrote to him.

While going through security at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport a TSA supervisor confiscated the necklace and refused to return it. The reason? It looked like a simulator.

Thankfully another TSA official found the item in a throwaway bin and was able to make arrangements for Bradley to get his treasured necklace back.

Pentagon Looking into Marine’s Death

Gunnery Sgt. Scott A. Koppenhafer was killed over the weekend during operations against an Islamic State group. This is the first combat death of an American in Iraq since October of 2017. The Defense Department said that Koppenhafer was killed by enemy fire, but defense officials have since come out to say that they are looking into the possibility that he was killed by friendly fire.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Koppenhafer’s family.
