Killed in action November, 2018
Operation Freedom’s Sentinel

Sergeant Leandro Jasso, 25, was deployed in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. He was wounded by small arms fire while conducting combat operations in Khash Rod district, in Afghanistan’s Nimruz province.

He was immediately treated and medically evacuated to the nearest medical treatment facility, in Garmsir district, in neighboring Helmand province, where he died Saturday of his wounds, according to U.S. Army Special Operations Command. The incident is under investigation. Sergeant Jasso was a team leader assigned to 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. He was on his third deployment to Afghanistan.

A native of Leavenworth, Washington, Sergeant Jasso enlisted in the Army in August 2012, according to USASOC. After completing initial entry training and airborne school, he successfully completed the Ranger Assessment and Selection Program and was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.

His awards and decorations include the Army Achievement Medal, the Army Good Conduct Medal, the Ranger Tab, the Combat Infantryman Badge and the Expert Infantryman Badge.

“Sergeant. Jasso was a humble professional who placed the mission first, lived the Ranger Creed and will be deeply missed,” said Lt. Col. Rob McChrystal, commander of 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, in a statement.

RIP Sergeant Jasso
