Sgt. Javier Jaguar Gutierrez and Sgt. Antonio Rey Rodriguez have been identified by the Defense Department as the U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan earlier this week. President Trump and Vice President Pence met with the families of the soldiers before the soldiers’ remains were brought into Dover Air Force Base. National security adviser Robert O’Brien stated that Trump ended a reelection campaign early to attend the dignified transfer. “These are terrible sacrifices for the families. And these guys are heroes, they’re real warriors and did a great job for the American people,” commented O’Brien.
