There are about 14,000 USA military personnel in Afghanistan, a lot of them serving as trainers and advisers with the Afghan military in their fight against the Taliban and ISIS.
Maciel was killed and two other American service members were wounded in what United States military officials called an "apparent insider attack" on July 7 while they were advising local forces at an Afghan military facility in the town of Tarin Kowt in Uruzgan Province.

The name of the killed soldier has not been released.
Officials said the incident is being investigated, and no further details were immediately available.
