Author and Gold Star wife presents her investigation of the Green Beret killings in Niger

Thursday, January 13, 2022

Starr Sutherland Jr. Post 227 of The American Legion is proud to host author and Gold Star wife, Michelle Black, for a presentation of her book entitled "Sacrifice."

Her husband, Bryan, was an integral part of the Green Beret team operating in Niger, North Africa under the broad U.S. Command of AFRICOM. In early 2017, the team on an assigned mission was ambushed by ISIS resulting in the tragic death of Bryan and three other team members. 

Reports of the event provided by the AFRICOM differed from the reports Michelle learned from the surviving Green Beret team members. The Command placed blame for failings of the mission on the team leader and the team.

This sparked Michelle to make an investigation which resulted in her book "Sacrifice". Michelle will bring books for sale before and after her presentation.
