Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey and national security adviser Robert O’Brien unveiled a commemorative mural Thursday honoring humanitarian worker Kayla Mueller, who was killed by ISIS in 2013. "Today, we are here to remember Kayla Mueller for who she really was — an American hero,” Ducey said, speaking at the Arizona National Guard Barry Goldwater hangar before a crowd of Army National Guard members.
Republican Sen. Martha McSally and Mueller's parents – Carl and Marsha Mueller – were also in attendance. The work, titled "Into the Breach," was painted by artist Stuart Brown and depicts the 2019 raid that killed ISIS terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was involved in Kayla Mueller's kidnapping.
