    Two US soldiers shot- another Blue on Green

    Two US soldiers shot- another Blue on Green

    RIP. I would never have volunteered for one of these new Brigade training units. And they are having a hard time filling their slots and keeping people. I wonder why?

    Two American service members were shot dead and a third wounded overnight in a rare “insider” attack when an Afghan soldier opened fire on a group of American forces at a military base in a conflict-torn region of southern Kandahar province.

    Blue is allied forces. Green is US forces. So when an allied force (Afghan) killed a US soldier it is called a blue on green attack.
