The terrorist attack in Kenya took place at Camp Simba, above, a joint U.S.-Kenyan base on the southeast coast. Army Specialist Henry Mayfield, Jr. was killed along with two Defense Department contractors, whose names have not yet been released. Spec. Mayfield, 23, was from Hazel Crest, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago; he enlisted in 2018. His mother Carmoneta told WMAQ-TV, “I last spoke with him New Year’s Day via FaceTime,” said Mayfield’s mother, Carmoneta. “We discussed him not having to go to Somalia and he told me everything was good and safe at his base. He told me everything would be OK. Those were his last words to me.” (Staff Sgt. Lexie West/USAF, file)
