At a Sunday press conference, it was confirmed that Major Taylor, member of the Utah National Guard, was killed in action, in an apparent insider attack, while serving with his unit there, under the operation Freedom Sentinel.

"As the U.S. gets ready to vote in our own election next week, I hope everyone back home exercises their precious right to vote", he wrote. Gen. Jefferson S. Burton, the adjutant general of the Utah National Guard.

Brent Chugg came out of retirement to serve as North Ogden's mayor while Taylor was in Afghanistan.

A Fallen Soldier Tribute at the Utah Army National Guard recruiting building in Draper, Utah, November 4, 2018. And it has been and will continue to be the great honor of our seven children for the rest of their lives, and I pray for many generations to come.

On Monday, my two oldest sons joined me and their proud but devastated grandparents in welcoming their father, Major Brent Russell Taylor, back on to US soil and back home to the land he has always loved so dearly. In his last message that I shared on my Twitter, he awakened not only Americans, but the world to the values of democracy and freedom.

The Facebook message that he refers to, Taylor's last, was written October 28 and reads, in part: "As the U.S.A gets ready to vote in our own election next week, I hope everyone back home exercises their precious right to vote".

"As the United States of America gets ready to vote in our own election next week, I hope everyone back home exercises their precious right to vote", he added. "Whether the Republicans or the Democrats win, I hope that we all remember that we have far more as Americans that unites us than divides us". "United we stand, divided we fall". "God Bless America", he wrote.

Most of those soldiers are focused on advising Afghan forces, but that leaves them susceptible to insider attacks. The attacker was killed by other Afghan security forces.

One other American service member who was wounded in the attack is now undergoing medical treatment but in stable condition, according to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation statement.

The city of North Ogden has a few options for replacing Mayor Taylor. He held a bachelor's degree in Political Science from Brigham Young University and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Utah, according to the North Ogden city website.
