Former GOP Candidate And Afghanistan Veteran Kyle Van De Water Has Been Found Dead

My heart goes out to Kyle’s family.

The Army veteran and former GOP Congressional candidate was reportedly found dead at the Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery.

Authorities claim that his death was due to a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head, and have cited his death as a “likely” suicide.

No official reason has been given for the apparent suicide of the Afghanistan veteran…..

Kyle leaves behind a wife and 4 children, and no one is outright saying it, but I have to wonder: is this related to Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, and handing Taliban forces an entire military fleet after 20 years of conflict?

People took to Twitter to share heart felt prayers and support for Kyle and his family:


Mid Hudson News reports:

Attorney Kyle Van De Water who ran as a Republican for Congress against incumbent Antonio Delgado (D, NY-19) died unexpectedly on Tuesday.

In July of 2021, the 41-year-old had announced that he was planning to challenge the incumbent again in 2022.

At the end of August, Van De Water seemingly dropped out of the race and used social media to announce his decision. On August 27, Van De Water, who had moved from Millbrook to Hyde Park, said, “I have been truly humbled by and will be forever grateful for all of the support I have received these past few years. It has been an honor getting to meet so many of you as I traveled across the district.


Newsmax adds:

“He was a war hero who put his life and well-being on the line for his country,” Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro said of Van De Water. “We owe him, his family, and all of our brave service men and women everything for the sacrifices they have made.”

Van De Water served eight years in the Army from 2006 until he was honorably discharged in 2014, the New York Post reported. He served in Kabul and was awarded the Bronze Star in 2011.
