    Staff Sgt. Alexander W. Conrad KIA in Somalia

    Business Insider reports that a special forces soldier was killed and four others were wounded during an engagement in Jubaland, Somalia;

    One US service member reportedly received sufficient medical care at the scene and three others were transported out of the area to receive treatment.

    A coalition comprised of around 800 US, Somalian, and Kenyan forces came under attack by mortar and small-arms fire at around 2:45 p.m. local time, AFRICOM said. One coalition service member was wounded.

    The coalition forces were conducting a “multi-day operation” to clear al-Shabaab — an Islamist militant group — from villages and establish a “permanent combat outpost” around 217 miles southwest of Mogadishu.

    The Department of Defense identified the soldier as Staff Sergeant Alexander W. Conrad;


    Staff Sgt. Alexander W. Conrad, 26, of Chandler, Arizona, died June 8, in Somalia of injuries sustained from enemy indirect fire. The incident is under investigation.

    Conrad was assigned to 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group, Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
