BROOKLYN — A Brooklyn marine was killed trying to save his comrade during a bloody clash in Afghanistan last week.
Lance Cpl. Jabari Thompson, 22, who wanted to be a marine like his dad, was mortally wounded in combat and succumbed to his injuries at a military hospital in Germany.
The NY Daily News Reports:
Jabari’s dad, Gregory, his big sister, Chekesha Thompson, 28, and his fiancée, Shemiah Louis, took a heartbreaking flight to Germany to be at his bedside when he died.
“I just told him that I loved him and that I wanted him to try to make it because I knew he had a strong heart,” said Chekesha.
