At 62, US special forces veteran battles against ISIS on lonely desert front | Fox News

On the Western side of Mosul, far from the media’s attention, lies a forgotten front crucial to choking off ISIS’ lifeline to Syria.

Fox News recently made the eight hour trip west from Mosul to the front outside the devastated city of Sinjar and found a small outpost where a handful of men hold off near-daily attacks from ISIS fighters.

One soldier manning the post was David Shumock, a 62-year-old Floridian and former U.S. Air Foreces pararescueman. The American fights side-by-side with the Kurdish Peshmerga, and serves as medic and trainer to his comrades, as well.
