​RIP WARRIOR: Afghanistan Medal of Honor Winner Passes Away at 41

Former Army Staff Sgt. Ronald Shurer II, who received the Medal of Honor in 2018 for braving heavy gunfire to save lives in Afghanistan, has died of cancer.  He was 41.

Miranda Shurer said her husband died Thursday in Sible Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C.  She said he was diagnosed with cancer three years ago.

Ronald Shurer II received the nation’s highest military honor from President Donald Trump in a formal White House ceremony attended by 250 people.

A native of Fairbanks Alaska, Shurer was a senior medical sergeant in the special forces on April 6, 2008 when his life saving heroics were performed.
After an honorable discharge in 2009 he began a career with the Secret Service as a special agent assigned to a field office in Phoenix, Arizona.

“Today, we lost an American Hero: Husband, Father, Son, Medal of Honor Recipient and Special Agent, Ronald J. Shurer II.  From a grateful Nation and Agency, your memory and legacy will live on forever,” the U.S. Secret Service said in a tweet.

In addition to his wife, Miranda, Shurer is survived by two sons.
