When former U.S. soldier Jordan Matson learned about ISIS rampage across Iraq and Syria, he knew he couldn’t sit back and do nothing.

So the 28-year-old food packaging worker from Sturtevant, Wisconsin contacted the Kurdish militia – known as the People’s Protection Units or YPG – through Facebook.

‘I prayed about it for about a month or two,’ Matson, a Christian, told CNN. ‘And I really soul searched and said, “is this really what I want to do?” Eventually, I decided to do it.’

Matson flew to Turkey and was taken to Rojava, a Kurdish-controlled area of northern Syria. For the past month, he has been a volunteer fighter helping to defend three small statelets in the area.

New friends: Matson, pictured second left, said he could not allow ISIS to take control of places, including in Iraq, after Americans had fought hard - and lost their lives - for their democracy
