Another American Volunteer Killed Fighting ISIS Spotlights U.S.-to-Syria Pipeline | NBC News

At least three American volunteers have died fighting with U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in Syria this month, relatives and the Kurdish militias say, shining a spotlight on a little-known underground pipeline of U.S. citizens who leave their lives and families behind to oppose ISIS in battle.

The three Americans were killed while fighting with the YPG, or People’s Defense Units — part of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a coalition of Arab militias that has been a main ally of the U.S.-led coalition opposing ISIS in northern Syria.

The YPG announced Tuesday that David Taylor, 25, a U.S. Marine veteran from Florida, was “martyred” on July 16 while fighting ISIS in the Syrian city of Raqqa. Taylor’s father confirmed his son’s death to The Associated Press.
