I won't comment on the war. This is not the time for that. This is the time from prayers for the families who have lost a loved one. May they find peace in the knowledge their loved ones gave their lives for something they truly believed in...FREEDOM. RIP Brothers.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Horrible. Just horrible. My heart goes out to the fallen and their families. God bless our men and women in uniform.

One last thing, someone on this forum has the saying "All it takes for evil to win is for good men to do nothing" in their signature. Do not forget the United Sates more times than not is the "good men".
Horrible shame. That's a lot of courage and talent to lose in one blow.
My prayers for the families of the fallen and their comrades.
Sad news for sure...may all these good men R.I.P.

Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
I crewed on a Chinook in Vietnam. We never flew hooks into an LZ that hadn't been thoroughly prepped, without escort gunships or had not been cleared by infantry. How is it possible that some raggedy Afghan got close enough to plug the ship with an RPG-7? A CH-47 is a big, fat, slow moving target. Are they sending in heavy lift ships without any cover now? This seems like it shouldn't have happened. Terrible about the loss of life here. I have to wonder what the war is actually accomplishing.
