The following sailors assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit were killed:
All of those guys would have came from the same base in the Norfolk area.

I can't imagine what the area is like right now. Highly military and patriotic. I am sure there are signs and flags every where in the city.

Sad :(

I hope that this also follows within the scope off this thread. The fallen journalists who risk their lives and health to provide reports from within war zones:

Ahmed Omed Khpulwak died in July, 2011, in Tarin Kowt in southern Uruzgan province of Afghanistan.

8 September 2011, BBC:

Khpulwak reportedly sent his brother two text messages at the time. The first read: "I am hiding. Death has come." In the second, he wrote: "Pray for me if I die."

Khpulwak, who also worked for the Pajwak Afghan news agency, joined the BBC in 2008.
You have a pm from me. For everyone else, please respect that this thread is solely for memorializing our American combat fallen. Do not post anything else here but respects for the fallen I alone have listed.

Disagree? Do NOT desecrate this thread with your disagreement. Either post in Mod Discussions or pm me.
