Investigation Details Afghanistan Insider Attack That Killed Army Sergeant Major
27 Jun 2020 | By Matthew Cox

Members of the U.S. Army's Security Force Assistance Brigades are trained to form tight bonds of trust with foreign counterparts, a culture that set the conditions for Command Sgt. Maj. Timothy Bolyard to lose his life in a 2018 green-on-blue attack in Afghanistan, an Army investigation shows.

On the morning of Sept. 3, 2018, Bolyard and his fellow soldiers from the Headquarters, 3rd Squadron, 1st SFAB were visiting Forward Operating Base Maiwand in Logar province, Afghanistan. They planned to attend a local meeting, or shura, with the commander of the 4th Brigade, 203rd Corps of the Afghan National Army on the topic of election security.
Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

Anybody else think that SGM looked like a tv star that always takes secondary roles and appears to be good-natured and harmless? Can't remember his name to save my life,but he is a VERY good actor.

BTW,the 1st SFAB is in no way related to Special Forces. It seems to be some sort of diploma,btic group that works with Muslims,but that's just a WAG.
Ever think you would be arrested for NOT wearing a mask when entering a convenience store?
