During a ceremony at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, the bodies of the Army reserve soldiers, Sgt. William Rivers, Sgt. Breonna Moffett, and Sgt. Kennedy Sanders, each in a flag-draped transfer case, were removed in turn by teams of six carriers wearing camouflage uniforms and white gloves. They were carried from the cargo bay of a massive gray C-5 transport plane into a van.
The three soldiers, all from Georgia, were killed last weekend in a drone attack in Jordan by Iran-backed militants.
