+Grim Reaper 6 Posted June 17, 2022 #1 Share Posted June 17, 2022 A third former U.S. serviceman who has gone missing in Ukraine has been identified, however, his whereabouts remain unknown. Family of friends of Grady Kurpasi, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps for 20 years, last heard from the veteran on April 24, according to a report. Kurpasi arrived in Ukraine to volunteer alongside Ukrainian forces on March 7. His last known location was in the Kherson region, in southeastern Ukraine, where he manned an observation post in late April, according to the report. Kherson is currently occupied by Russian forces. For him personally, he has a skillset that he feels he can give back,” George Heath, a family friend of Kurpasi’s, told CNN on Thursday. “He wanted to go and help the Ukrainian people. He wasn’t really planning on fighting.” State Department spokesman Ned Price said on Thursday that the department is aware of the third missing American in Ukraine and is "in touch with the family." On Wednesday, reports emerged that two other former U.S. servicemen had been captured by Russian forces in Ukraine. A photo purportedly of the two volunteers, Alexander Drueke and Andy Huynh, was posted on the social media platform Telegram on Thursday by a Russian blogger. The image purported to show the two Americans in the back of a Russian military truck with their hands apparently tied behind their backs. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/third-american-missing-in-ukraine/ar-AAYzsXj? 3 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
