Condolence Statement from Lt. Gen. Pat White

By CJTF-OIR Public Affairs

"On behalf of the military Coalition, I send my deepest condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of U.S. Marine Corps Capt. Moises A. Navas and Gunnery Sgt. Diego D. Pongo. Their courage to confront the evil of ISIS, while advising Iraqi Security Forces, in close combat is a testament to the Coalition’s steadfast commitment to achieve our goal to defeat ISIS permanently.  Moises and Diego made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedoms and protect our way of life; they will not be forgotten."
