Congressman Poe on Fallen Solider-Sergeant James Moriarty

On Friday, November 4, 2016 a military base in Jordan was attacked. Houstonian James Moriarty, 27, was killed in the gunfire. Sergeant Moriarty was a proud member of the Army’s Special Forces, scheduled to return home in two weeks after completing three tours of duty in Jordan. Men and women behind the uniform like Sergeant Moriarty are the best the America has. I do not believe it was a coincidence that only Americans were killed and I urge the Administration and government of Jordan to complete a comprehensive investigation of the attack as soon as possible. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
