Thousands of US troops have lost their lives while on duty in foreign lands. It is never easy for the grieving family to come to terms with a loss like this. However, Ariell Taylor-Brown, widow of Sergeant Christopher Brown was shocked to find out about her husband’s death while on a tour of duty to Afghanistan via Facebook!
Normally, there is a very strict protocol involved in a case like this and the relatives of a deceased soldier are told via proper military channel and decorum. However, her late husband’s fellow soldier in Afghanistan contacted Ariell via face book asking her to contact, as there was an emergency. On calling, Ariell was told of her husband’s death.
The military is investigating who the violator of military procedure could be.
Sergeant Christopher Brown was in Afghanistan for his fourth tour just one week before he was killed. He leaves behind a pregnant wife and two kids.
