After that remark, Boebert shouted, "You put them in, 13 of them," referencing˙13 service members˙who died last year in a bomb attack in Kabul.
Democrats booed Boebert after the outburst.
Biden continued without acknowledging Boebert's comment, mentioning his son: "I don't know for sure if the burn pit that he lived near in Iraq, and earlier than that, in Kosovo, was the cause of his brain cancer, or the disease of so many of our troops, but I am committed to finding out everything we can," he said.
Boebert tweeted about the moment after the speech, claiming she "couldn't stay silent" when she heard Biden refer to "flag-draped coffins."
