Joe and Jill Biden on Friday attended the dignified transfer of the three US servicemembers killed in a drone attack in Jordan last weekend.
Three U.S. Servicemembers were killed and were 34 injured with 8 requiring to be transported to another location for treatment. The troops were reportedly in a tent structure sleeping when they were attacked by a UAS, or unmanned aircraft system, late Saturday night into Sunday.
The three servicemembers killed in action were all members of the 718th Engineer Company, a reservist unit out of Fort Moore, Georgia.
The Pentagon released the names of three deceased servicemembers:
Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, 46 of Carrollton, GA
Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders, 24, of Waycross, GA
Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Moffett, 23, Savannah, GA

The US on Friday began retaliatory strikes in the Middle East after three American service members were killed in Jordan on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden was at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware attending the dignified transfer of the three troops killed in the drone attack.
Dr. Jill made sure Joe Biden didn’t check his watch during the dignified transfer like he did last time.

Joe Biden likely wore gloves on Friday in balmy 43-degree weather so he wouldn’t check his watch. Virtually no one else who attended the dignified transfer wore gloves (except for Jill Biden).
Jill Biden kept an eye on Joe to make sure he didn’t check his watch.
