Helicopter Crash in Afghanistan Reportedly Kills Members of SEAL Team 6

Postby bh49 » Sat Aug 06, 2011 12:34 pm

"A military helicopter was shot down in eastern Afghanistan, killing 31 U.S. special operation troops, most of them from the elite Navy SEALs unit that killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, along with seven Afghan commandos. It was the deadliest single incident for American forces in the decade-long war"

This is really bad day. G-d bless their soles.

Something tells me it just became open season on anyone in the Warduk province who is found to own a RPG. My heart goes out to the families of the fallen.

Makes me feel all kinds of emotions, I just don't know what to say.
A sad day indeed.

It Is The Soldier.............

Postby SkullBouncer » Tue Aug 09, 2011 4:00 pm

This is a very difficult time for so many. My heart and prayers go out to all those upon which these losses weigh most heavily.


To borrow some phraseology:

"It is the soldier, not the poet, who gives us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter, who gives us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us freedom to protest. It is the soldier who serves beneath the flag, who salutes the flag and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the demonstrator the right to burn the flag."

In Remembrance of all 31 American servicemen killed in action on August 6, 2011 -- thank you for your Service... your Sacrifice...... and your Dedication to A Grateful Nation.

May God Bless And Keep You; Be with your families in this time of sorrow, and my God continue to bless and watch over all of our servicemen and women who will wake up tomorrow morning, and continue willingly to Serve In Harm's Way and to lay down their lives if necessary so that the United States of America, its Freedoms, It's Liberties and the Lives of its Citizens can Remain Safe Another Day.

It's hard to say it any better than that Bruce.
Thank you
My family and I shall never forget the sacrifices our service members make FOR US everyday.

Makes You appreciate Our Freedom, payed for with the blood of Our Service Men and Woman. We All owe them a Debt of Gratitude, which could never be repaid.
My heart goes out to all the Families and Friends of these Wonderful Heroes, who are doing nothing More than their very dangerous job. We certainly Owe them, for everything that We hold dear, though words cannot express deeply enough!
Thank You For Your Service, and God Bless Each and Every One Of You!
Deeply Saddened,
Charlie
