    Former Marine Joins Kurds in Syria to Fight Islamic State



    UPI | Oct 03, 2014

    While President Barack Obama maintains he will not use U.S. ground forces in the battle against the Islamic State, one former Marine has taken it upon himself to enter the fight.

    Jordan Matson has reportedly joined the YPG, a Kurdish military force in Syria, to fight IS, also known as ISIS.

    The Wisconsin native posted a photo to Facebook on Sept. 30, dressed in camouflage, a head scarf, and holding a weapon.

    In one Facebook post, Matson wrote that he was injured in a six-hour firefight after being struck by a mortar, "but i am fine now." He suggests that he is among other Americans fighting IS when he asks, "Please keep me and the other americans and kurdish fighters in your prayers."

    The Dicle News Agency reported that Matson has been fighting alongside YPG for one week and has been monitoring a border area near Iraq. Although he has encountered some language difficulties, DIHA noted "he is happy that he has gained acceptance so quickly in the YPG" and doesn't plan to leave until IS is defeated.
