Channing Tatum Writes Touching Post To Honor Soldier Who Lost His Life

Channing Tatum is handsome enough to never have to speak, or walk or feed himself, and yet he has proven to be a kind and caring individual with a full mastery of the English language.

On Saturday, First Sergeant Peter Andrew McKenna was reportedly killed in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Tatum, who said he met the 35-year-old Green Beret in the midst of a USO tour earlier this year, posted a touching tribute to Sgt. McKenna on Instagram.

The photo shows Sgt. McKenna, who also served in Iraq, sandwiched between Tatum and fellow "Magic Mike XXL" cast members Adam Rodriguez and Nick Zano.

The star captioned the pic:

I'd like to offer my deepest condolences to the family of First Sergeant Peter Andrew McKenna, a brave soldier we had the honor or meeting in Afghanistan. He tragically lost his life in an attack on one of the bases we visited on @theuso tour back in February. Let's always remember to thank the men and women who serve this country and so often sacrifice their own lives for ours.

Clearly worthy of such kind words, Sgt. McKenna earned the Bronze Star Medal with "V" device for heroism in combat, the Meritorious Service Medal and the Army Commendation Medal throughout his years serving his country, Cosmopolitan reports.
