In this Sept. 30, 2015, photo Defense Secretary Ash Carter speaks to reporters during a news conference at the Pentagon. Carter says the American soldier killed in the mission that rescued 70 hostages from an Islamic State prison in Iraq was a hero for rushing into a firefight to defend his Kurdish partners, even though the plan called for the Kurds to do the fighting on their own. On Oct. 23, Carter applauded 39-year-old Army Master Sgt. Joshua L. Wheeler of Roland, Oklahoma, who died of his wounds Oct. 22. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)
