The Massachusetts senator and former presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren made public the news on Thursday that one of her brothers died of coronavirus earlier this week. Don Reed Herring, a Vietnam war veteran, died on Tuesday evening in Oklahoma.
Warren made the announcement on Twitter, saying: “My oldest brother, Don Reed, died from coronavirus on Tuesday evening. He joined the Air Force at 19 and spent his career in the military, including five and a half years off and on in combat in Vietnam. He was charming and funny, a natural leader.”
She posted family pictures and a shot of him serving in the air force. He died in Oklahoma, where he lived, as do the senator’s other two brothers.
Warren, 70, was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Warren often mentioned his military service on the campaign trail.
