Mayor of North Ogden, Utah, Killed In Afghanistan

10 months after his most recent deployment to Afghanistan, it's been confirmed that Brent Taylor, mayor of North Ogden, Utah and a major in the Utah National Guard has been killed in action.  

 

The Utah National Guard (of which Taylor served as a major) reported that Taylor was killed today, in what's being called an "insider attack" orchestrated by at least one member of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces - the very same forces he was sent there to train.

 

The attacker was immediately killed by other Afghani security forces. 

Taylor was just 39-years-old, and had anticipated returning in January 2019.  Last month he celebrated his 15th wedding anniversary.

A glance at his final Facebook post helps show what kind of person Taylor was:

 

Gary Herbert, governor of Utah, will deliver a public address on Sunday at 12 PM Noon to give more details on the circumstances of Taylor's death.  The city of North Ogden released the following statement:

"Everywhere you look in North Ogden you can see his profound influence. He had a great love and vision for this community. He was patriotic to the core and a shining example of what an American politician should be."

Taylor was first elected to North Ogden city council back in 2009 before becoming the city's mayor in 2013.
