WASHINGTON — Navy Chief Petty Officer Shannon Mary Kent wasn’t supposed to be in Syria.

Last year, the 35-year-old mother of two was slated to attend a clinical psychology doctoral program near Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

But an obscure Navy rule and a previous bout of cancer derailed those plans and led to her fifth combat deployment instead. She was killed less than two months later. https://www.stripes.com/family-of-fallen-navy-linguist-fights-regulation-that-forced-her-deployment-to-syria-1.566601
