In a grim reminder that America has been at war for nearly a decade, Mother Jones reporter Adam Weinstein notes that Sgt. 1st Class Kristoffer B. Domeij was on his 14th deployment since 2002 when he was killed on Sunday by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan, according to the Army's announcement. The story of the ten-year veteran is described in an Army release announcing his and two other soldiers's deaths. The 29 year-old, born in San Diego and father of two daughters, was killed "during combat operations in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan when the assault force triggered an improvised explosive device," according to the biography prepared by the U.S. Army.
