Obtain U.S. citizenship and die: voiced data on the soldier who died in Kabul

50
In the United States, the name of a soldier who died recently as a result of a terrorist attack by a soldier is named. It turned out to be the 34-year-old sergeant of the 1-class Barreto Ortiz from Puerto Rico. Sergeant Ortiz in North Carolina has a wife (widow) and minor children.


Obtain U.S. citizenship and die: voiced data on the soldier who died in Kabul


Barreto Ortiz signed with Pentagon in 2010. In Puerto Rico, they write that so the 25-year-old (at that time) young man tried to accelerate the acquisition of American citizenship.

Note: Puerto Rico is officially an associate state - an unincorporated territory actually under the jurisdiction of the United States. Managed by the US Congress through a semblance of local governance. Puerto Rico residents theoretically have more opportunities to obtain American citizenship than representatives of other Latin American countries. But this thesis does not always apply. One of the common ways to obtain citizenship is through recruitment into the US Army. After some time of service, a Puerto Rican may become a US citizen. Barreto Ortiz was one of those Puerto Ricans.



It may sound somewhat blasphemous, but the fact is that Ortiz eventually received citizenship in order to die thousands of kilometers from his homeland - in Kabul.

It is noted that he was sent to Afghanistan for the second time. This time he was part of the 82th Airborne Division Support Battalion, deployed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Three years before his last business trip, Ortiz graduated from an airborne school in Georgia. The American military command sent condolences to the family of Sergeant Ortiz.

The name of the Romanian soldier who died in Afghanistan is also named. It turned out to be the 38-year-old corporal Ciprian-Stefan Polschi. He made the third trip to Afghan territory.

      With them, on the contrary, there are problems - they are too eager to engage in battle, are not disciplined, they kill civilians in a rage. Latinos, Indians - hot blood. Because of this, the Marines receive thrashing from the command.

            This is the US Department of Defense website https://archive.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=122052
            Here is part of the text (Google translation):
            Jim Garamone
            US Armed Forces Press Service

            WASHINGTON, April 14, 2014. On April 12, a Russian attack aircraft repeatedly flew near the USS Donald Cook in international waters on the Black Sea, a Pentagon spokesman said today.
            USS Cook patrolled in the western Black Sea when an unarmed Russian Su-24 Fencer attack aircraft repeatedly flew near a naval ship, Army Colonel Steve Warren told reporters.
            “The plane did not respond to the numerous inquiries and warnings of Donald Cook, and the event ended without incident after about 90 minutes,” said Warren. “These provocative and unprofessional actions of Russia do not comply with international protocols and previous agreements on the professional interaction of our military.”
            According to Warren, there were two Russian aircraft, but only one participated in provocative actions. He added that the plane took off from sea level about a couple of thousand feet, but it never flew around an American destroyer class Arly Burke.
            “The Russian aircraft made a total of 12 calls,” he said.
            According to Warren, the follower remained at a much greater height.
            Officials later reported that the plane approached within 1000 yards of the ship. Warren said USS Cook was never in danger.

            It's fine.

            Except for the following.
            At a distance of less than 1000 meters (more precisely, more than 910 meters), a colossus weighing more than 23 tons is carried.
            Twelve times in a row.
            And neither the ship nor its crew are taking any steps to stop this "outrage and hooliganism."
            They simply passively observe how Russian pilots (crew of 2 people) repeat Chekalov's flight stunts.

            And how can one determine that an aircraft is unarmed?
            After all, missile suspensions cannot be identified from a distance of 100 km.
            X 35 will not be active until launch.
            And now this ship wants to make sure that the aircraft do not have weapons, but it does not take active actions.
            Those. his missile systems were supposed to work at full capacity.
            And the pilots immediately realized that they were on the gun.
            And joking is not worth it.
            And they rode back and forth 12 times.
            Despite the fact that the crew stood at the sides and filmed the movie about the war.
            Instead of being on combat posts in accordance with the threat.

            There were Khibiny, there was no Khibiny - this is science and we do not know.
            But the fact that something out of the ordinary happened was a fact.

              And rightly so. Disciplined professional military.
              They did not allow to drag themselves into the adventure of one plane.

Well, yes, the "natives" of America "thrive" with discipline, change sex, do not go on the attack because of the lack of Coca Cola and toilet paper. Since he died following an order from the United States, he has already fulfilled his duty to the country. I can recall that in Russia, citizenship is obtained after a three-year contract in the army (and also with problems in obtaining citizenship).

      And in the Russian Empire too. Many Europeans enlisted in the army in Russia. Received a junior officer rank and the opportunity to excel in wars. And a lot of them died in the Russian-Turkish, Caucasian wars, the campaign of 1812-14, etc. If they differed in service, they received the nobility (without land).

                Applications by applications, but I have more than enough acquaintances living in the states and living there. Who comes from Moscow, and the property remained there, very many returned. I'm not talking about huge queues from the states, but about the trend. My brother’s brother works in a migration center in Moscow. and says that over the past FIVE-SIX years the number of applications for obtaining Russian citizenship by our former Soviet-Russian fellow citizens (I'm talking about Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and some others) has increased. So what???? you are trying to evade the fact that the Russians decided to dunk us stupidly, like: you have a small population density in Raska and people still don’t want to live there. Well then you write to us for comparison how many Israeli citizens leave (or how do you say they apply) to move to the United States ??? I just then would not have written a word to you if you had done so, but you specially or not specially dunked only and only us))))

      The Romans had a conscription system and they did not know the problems with the recruits.
      Until they began to worship the golden calf. And when they started - what is the point of joining the army - then they started to recruit non-Roman legionnaires ....

      I apologize, but not a citizen of Rome could not be a legionnaire from the word at all! Non-citizens served in separate cohorts and were called auxilaria.
      Citizenship was obtained by length of service in auxilia, and now their children could already serve in the legion.

    It turned out to be a 34-year-old sergeant of the 1st class

    It turns out that Kazakhstan has a rank according to their example ... (from Wiki)
    Sergeant of the first class (Eng. Sergeant First Class, abbreviation "SFC") - the military rank of the sergeant of the armed forces of the United States, Kazakhstan, as well as some other armed forces of the states of the world.
    In the US Army, this rank is the seventh step in the hierarchy, located above the ranks of Staff Sergeant and below the ranks of First Sergeant and Master Sergeant.
    A first-class sergeant coordinates the platoon, sometimes led by a second lieutenant. A first-class sergeant may also head a specialized unit, not to be confused with a regular unit. In circulation is used as a sergeant.
    In the United States Marine Corps, the equivalent rank is the Commander Sergeant, in the United States Air Force - Master Sergeant and First Sergeant.

          Well, Great Britain is grateful to the United States that they pulled out of the ass, where the British put Hirohito. Hong Kong, Singapore, Burma lost, from India began to drape - but here the Americans arrived in time with their aircraft carriers and DC-4, adjusted the supply of the English army.
          Canada is an English colony, which Washington (man and commander) did not reach. Therefore, after the weakening of Great Britain, I had to look for another owner, although formally Canada is governed by the Governor-General, appointed by the Queen.
          By the way, due to the fact that WWII broke the ridge to the colonial countries, Hitler and Hirohito are very good heroes in Southeast Asia.
