"People ask me, 'Why you?' I come back and I say, 'Why not? Why just me? Where's everyone else at?'"

A young military veteran from Detroit, Michigan, known as a "Soldier of Christ", is serving on the frontlines to defeat the Islamic State terror group in obedience to Jesus' command to protect the poor and oppressed.

"People ask me, 'Why you?' I come back and I say, 'Why not? Why just me? Where's everyone else at?'" the U.S. Army veteran known as only Brett told ABC News in an interview.

Despite being severely wounded while serving in Iraq in 2006 and 2007, the young soldier says he's not afraid of once again facing the enemy.

"Jesus says, you know, 'What you do unto the least of them, you do unto Me.' I take that very seriously," Brett said, adding that he came to Iraq to serve all who are defenseless-Christian and non-Christian alike.

Islamic State militants have targeted religious minorities, particularly Christian and Yazidis, since overtaking large swaths of Iraq and Syria over the past year.

Thousands of Believers have been driven from their homes or murdered by the extremist group, which has vowed to cleanse the region of religions other than Islam. Additionally, hundreds of Christian women and girls have been raped, tortured, or sold into slavery.

Yesterday, the jihadists kidnapped 90 Christians from two towns in Syria in retaliation for a major Kurdish offensive aimed at freeing villages from the terror group's control. The condition and whereabouts of the Christians is currently unknown.

Less than a week prior, ISIS released a chilling video titled "A Message Signed With Blood to the Nation of the Cross," which shows the execution 21 Egyptian Christians, who died while singing hymns to Jesus.
