  • Rest in Peace, mighty soldiers.

    Just saw this on abcnews.com

    Chinook crashed in Wardak, Afghanistan this morning. Took the "title" of the worst day for loss of life in Afghanistan since the war started. Kind of a harsh reminder of the conflict over in the middle east...

          15 members of DEVGRU's Gold Squadron were among the 38 killed on Saturday, August 6, 2011 in a Chinook helicopter crash that occurred in Maidan Wardak province; the crash wiped out an entire troop of the squadron. The personnel in the helicopter are said to have belonged to an “immediate reaction force” that was en route to support Army Rangers who were in contact under fire and pinned down on the ground. It was the largest loss of U.S life since the beginning of the 2001 Afghan war, and is the largest single loss ever suffered by the SEAL community.

          It's terrible for them to go out like this. They deserved a hero's welcome.

          Oh, Death was never enemy of ours!
          We laughed, knowing that better men would come,
          And greater wars; when each proud fighter brags
          He wars on Death, for lives: not men, for flags.
