Sen. Lee Mourns the Loss of Utah Soldier Brent Taylor

November 5, 2018

SALT LAKE CITY - Sen. Mike Lee issued the following statement after the Utah National Guard confirmed that Major Brent Taylor was tragically killed on Kabul, Afghanistan Saturday.

“Major Brent Taylor was the definition of the term ‘public servant.’ He dedicated his life to his family, his community, and his country. Every interaction that my staff and I had with Mayor Taylor left us better and provided living evidence of the best of Utah. In the coming days, Utahns who never had the privilege of meeting Brent will learn what kind of man North Ogden and the Taylor family have lost, and will join them in grieving his tragic loss.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out the Taylor family during this time.”
