"The Georgian Armed Forces and the people of Georgia are making vital contributions to realizing our shared objectives under NATO's International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. The United States deeply appreciates and respects Georgia's contributions, and the sacrifices that come with them. We will honor First Lt. Shukvani's memory in continuing our work to build a peaceful, stable Afghanistan," the document concludes.
