  • Utah National Guard shows Maj. Brent Taylor of the Utah National Guard. Taylor former mayor of North Ogden died in Afghanistan on Saturday Nov. 3 2018 City Councilman Phillip Swanson said. Taylor was deployed to Afg

"You may or may not be aware of some of our cultural differences", he wrote in the letter, addressed to Taylor's wife, Jennie, "but in Afghanistan family is not everything, for many of us, family are treated as property".

His killer opened fire during a training exercise and was immediately shot afterwards.

In his final Facebook posting a week ago Taylor had encouraged everyone to vote and offered a reminder "that we have far more as Americans that unites us than divides us".

"When I asked Jennie what she would like me to say when we came out, she said that there is heartache but no regret", Taylor's sister-in-law, Kristy Pack, told reporters over the weekend, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. His remains are scheduled to arrive at Dover Air Force Base in DE on Monday evening.

"I hope my kids grow up and look back at this, not as a time they missed Dad or that Dad wasn't here or Mom needed extra help", his wife said earlier this year before he deployed.

"He died on our soil but he died for the success of freedom and democracy in both our countries", Rahmani wrote.

A plane carrying Taylor's casket, which was covered by an American flag, landed at Dover Air Force base in DE in the early morning.

The couple has seven children who range from 11 months to 13-years-old.

Just days before he died, Taylor posted a hopeful message on Facebook calling the elections in Afghanistan "beautiful to see" and called on Americans to vote in Tuesday's midterm election.

The somber service took place before sunrise.

Taylor's widow and mother of his seven children, Jennie Taylor, arrived at Dover Air Force Base in DE on Monday to meet her husband's body.

He was a US soldier killed in Afghanistan on Saturday. "The strong turnout, despite the attacks and challenges, was a success for the long-suffering people of Afghanistan and for the cause of human freedom".

"As the United States of America gets ready to vote in our own election next week, I hope everyone back home exercises their precious right to vote", he wrote.

The roughly 17,000 residents of North Ogden are mourning the loss of their city's mayor - the city government writing in a statement posted to its website that Taylor had "a profound influence on this community". He became a major in 2013. He was killed in an "insider attack" by a member of the ANSF, the National Guard confirmed on Sunday.

"It's bitter. He was with folks he was helping and training", Burton said. That's what's so painful about this.

"I personally can not find words adequate to tell you all that I feel as I stand here this morning by the dawn's early light", Jennie Taylor later told reporters. Gen. Jefferson S. Burton, the adjutant general of the Utah National Guard, said on Sunday.
