The United States has condemned the soldier's actions. But Cauthen, who is president of the local chapter of Blue Star Mothers, which supports the families of those serving in the war zone, said she's afraid of reprisals, especially after the Taliban vowed revenge for the shootings.
“I know a lot of families that do have people over
there right now. It just adds one more thing to make you worry of what's
going to happen next,” Cauthen said.
