Some 500 people on Tuesday attended the Baltimore funeral of US soldier Matthew Ryan Seidler, a Jewish airman who was killed in Afghanistan.

Seidler died on January 5th of injuries sustained in an attack in Shir ghazi, located in the Helmand Province of southern Afghanistan.

“He loved the Air Force. It was his calling. There was no second choice,” His father Marc Seidler was quoted as saying by the Jewish Baltimore Times. “He was very happy with his band of brothers, and [being in the US Air Force] reconnected him with the importance of family. He loved getting the letters and emails and packages."
