The older brother of a US Marine killed in the Kabul bombing last August due to Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal committed suicide at the memorial for the fallen soldier.
Recall, 13 US service members were killed and many more were wounded last August in a suicide blast in Kabul because of Joe Biden’s corruption and incompetence.
Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui, 20, of Norco, CA, was one of the Marines killed in the suicide blast.
Kareem Nikoui’s brother committed suicide on August 9th – one year after his little brother was killed because of Joe Biden.
Please pray for Shana Chappell who is experiencing unimaginable grief after losing two of her sons in one year.

Fox News reported:
The brother of a young Marine killed during the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan reportedly died by suicide a year later during a recent memorial service for the fallen service member.
Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui, 20, from Norco, California, was one of 13 American troops killed on Aug. 26, 2021, when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive outside the Kabul airport as crowds of Americans and Afghan allies sought to flee Taliban fighters taking over control of the capital city.
Nearly a year later, Nikoui’s older brother, 28-year-old Dakota Halverson, died on Aug. 9, a press release from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department confirmed, though offering few details.
Rosas shared a link to a GoFundMe page, writing that “Shana Chappell, who lost her son LCpl. Kareem Nikoui in the attack during the Afghanistan evacuation last year, announced her son Dakota died.” Rosas’ tweet included the hashtag “#SuicideAwareness.”
“Dakota Halverson was a loving son, brother and friend,” Chappell wrote on GoFundMe. “Losing his brother nearly one year ago has proven too difficult to bear. Any donations for his burial and services would be greatly appreciated as he wanted to be buried next to his brother Kareem, who was killed August 26th, 2021, while serving his country. His family and I want to honor his wishes.”
