Former U.S. Army Soldier Joins Kurdish Militia To Fight ISIS


Jordan Matson, a former U.S. solider, for the last month has been a volunteer fighter in the Kurdish militia known here as the People's Protection Units, or YPG.

The group has been defending three small Kurdish villages in northern Syria. The Kurdish militants have also spent much of the last year battling ISIS, the hardline jihadist group that wants to create an Islamic state across parts of Iraq and Syria.
"Due to two years of almost no foreign policy in the region -- while these people threatened American citizens, and bring harm to us -- I think I decided enough was enough, and I decided to come out this way"
