It is always a hard day when someone in the military is arrested, but alas that is what happened today when a United States soldier was arrested for allegedly being involved with ISIS. The soldier arrested was Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang. He has been serving in the military since early 2001.
He was arrested by a FBI SWAT team at the Schofield Barracks. The FBI made the decision to arrest him following intel they received that he was allegedly trying to give classified documents and use a drone to communicate with members of ISIS.
There has been an on going investigation into him over a year and today it reached a dramatic climax as he was arrested.
Ikaika Kang had served active duty in both Iraq and Afghanistan and it is believed he became radicalised while serving in both locations. His father, Clifford Kang, said to media sources that Ikaika began studying Islam while serving abroad.
It is important in times like this that we take time to reflect on the evils of ISIS and the hardship that the men and women in the military go through. If you support those people who risk their lives day and night to protect our freedom then please SHARE this article with your family and friends.
