MUST-SEE: Former U.S. Army Soldier Describes Joining Kurds To Fight ISIS (VIDEO)


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.
