MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A solder with Minnesota ties has died in a bombing in Afghanistan.

The Department of Defense says 31-year-old Staff Sergeant Adam Thomas died Tuesday after he was hit by a roadside bomb while on patrol with Afghan forces. Thomas was a Green Beret stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado.

The Star Tribune reports Thomas went to elementary school in the St. Peter area. His parents still live in Minnesota.

    Gosh, that sounds like a tour of Afghanistan is almost as dangerous as passing through downtown or north Minneapolis.

    The man is an invisible hero. Out there doing infinitely more than we’ll ever know. Thank you for your service SSG Adam Thomas.

    I thought Obama pulled all troops out of Afghanistan. Obama told us we lost and it’s over. You mean to tell me Obama is still killing our American military servicemen? Where is the liberal media body count like they did with Bush?

    Why the F does the liberal media like WCCO always have to tie people, who die from car accidents out of state or military heroes killed, back to Minnesota even though they have absolutely ZERO ties to this state? There is a reason these people left Minnesota. Because it’s a liberal pile of excrement. Full of BLM terrorists, Somali terrorists, abortionists, mentally ill suicidal Democrat voters.
