An American citizen and Marine veteran has died fighting Russia and Ukraine, while reportedly in the employment of an unnamed military contractor company.
22-year old Willy Joseph Cancel had entered Ukraine from Poland, sometime around March 12 or 13, and his family has just announced his death which occurred Monday (April 25), according to CNN.
Further, he was “working with a private military contracting company when he was killed on Monday. The company had sent him to Ukraine, and he was being paid while he was fighting there, Cancel’s mother, Rebecca Cabrera, told CNN.”
Curiously, CNN fails to identify the contracting firm.
