The Department of Defense has confirmed that one of three U.S. soldiers that died on November 4, 2016 in Jafr, Jordan was 30-year-old Army Staff Sergeant Kevin J. McEnroe of Tucson, Arizona.

The death of the three soldiers was announced Friday.

The other two soldiers killed were identified Saturday as 27-year-old Army Staff Sergeant James Moriarty of Kerrville, Texas and 27-year-old Army Staff Sergeant Matthew Lewellen of Lawrence, Kansas.

All three soldiers were supporting Operation Inherent Resolve.

An American official in Washington said one U.S. service member died at the scene and two who were wounded died at a hospital in Amman, the Jordanian capital. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because details of how the attack happened were still being investigated.
