At least one U.S. soldier is dead and two more are wounded in Afghanistan.  A medevac helicopter was fired upon as it tried to recover the soldiers after they were involved in a firefight. 

The dead soldier was reportedly part of the helicopter crew.  The U.S. Special Operations Forces were involved in counterterrorism operations near Marjah in southern Afghanistan.
