Medal of Honor Recipient, Secret Service Agent Ronald Shurer Dies at 41 of Lung Cancer

A distinguished life ended far too soon.

Published

A distinguished U.S. Army Veteran who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his service in the Afghanistan War and went on to serve as a Secret Service agent died on Thursday. Ronald Shurer II, 41, had been diagnosed with lung cancer in 2017.

Shurer enlisted in the United States Army in 2002 after being initially disqualified from the military due to a medical condition. The Washington native was trained as a special forces combat medic, and rose in rank to Staff Sergeant by the time he deployed to Afghanistan with the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force in 2007.

Shurer’s actions during what’s been called the Battle of Shok Valley served as the basis for his eventual Medal of Honor citation. Shurer’s squad came under intense automatic and RPG fire as they were moving through a valley seeking to kill or capture an Islamist warlord. With his squad pinned down, Shurer moved through intense enemy fire to provide medical treatment to several wounded soldiers, suffering injuries from RPG shrapnel and enemy fire. His actions proved critical in evacuating multiple wounded Americans from the battlefield to a medevac helicopter.

Shurer was initially granted the Silver Star in the aftermath of his Afghanistan Service, but an additional Department of Defense review resulted in the upgrade of his decoration for the incident to the Medal of Honor, the very highest award that the American military can bestow on its personnel. Shurer received the decoration in a 2018 ceremony from President Donald Trump.

The police scanner audio that took place when law enforcement was responding to the shooting can be heard here:

Loomer obtained information indicating that Alsahli received training at Saudi Arabia’s Umm Al-Qura University, which translates to the College of Sharia in English.

The Sharia Dean posted the following message in English on the official university website, indicating the university’s dedication to promoting Muslim values to students who attend the university:

Thanks be to Allah, Peace be upon the seal of prophets, UQU College of Shari’a has a seventy- year long history of dedication, spreading knowledge, and sustaining Islamic teachings.

The history of College of Shari’a goes back to 1369 H. It was founded by the late King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud to mark a new systematic form of education and Shari’a and Islamic studies, aside from the religious lessons that were offered in the vicinity of the Grand Mosque and Kaaba. Throughout its rich history, UQU College of Shari’a have been a home for several esteemed religious scholars and students from KSA, Arab World, Islamic countries, Europe and the USA.

Presently, the college makes strides to apply quality standards and acquire academic accreditation through its Shari’a program and other programs that are being designed.

I hope that our website helps fulfill the college mission and gives insight about its state of affairs. In conclusion, I pray to Allah, the Supreme-Answerer, to grant success to the college and everyone who has made an effort to contribute to its development and progress.

The U.S. is dedicated to their relationship with Saudi Arabia despite the nation’s history of harboring terrorists who hate and kill Americans.

The Trump administration had to deport 21 Saudi cadets last year following a mass shooting by another Saudi-radicalized Jihadi. The anti-American sleeper cells were receiving military training in the U.S. while supporting radical Islam and collecting child pornography:

Barr determined that the man who shot up the Naval Air Station last month was “motivated by Jihadist ideology.” He announced the findings at a press conference alongside FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich at the Department of Justice in Washington D.C.

The Attorney General confirmed that the 21 cadets who were being deported back to Saudi Arabia had child pornography or Jihadist and anti-American material on their computers. None of the men apparently had foreknowledge of the shooting, however.

National security adviser Robert O’Brien said the shooting clearly “showed that there had been errors in the way that we vetted” the foreign cadets. He said that the action to boot the 21 cadets is being done to “protect our service men and women,” but the practice of training foreign cadets at the Pensacola facility is likely to continue.

The suspect for the terrorist shooting is 21-year-old Mohammed Alshamrani, who served as a 2nd LT in the Royal Saudi Air Force. He allegedly murdered three U.S. sailors in cold blood and injured others before a sheriff’s deputy was finally able to intervene and kill the shooter before he could continue his rampage.

Alshamrani’s alleged case has caused many to question the “special relationship” between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, which is an Islamic dictatorship that operates under strict Sharia law and has one of the worst human rights’ records of any country in the world.

The U.S. must cut off all financial and strategic ties with this Islamic despotism in order to protect national security interests and put America first.
