Like most of you, I am just trying to absorb the loss of our brothers in arms today in the fateful crash of the helicopter in Afghanistan. These man are part of today’s greatest generation and a reminder of how precious life itself is. They are not a number. They are not just a part of any team. Each and every one was a son, brother, friend, shipmate, a part of this honored place we call America.
They are a reminder of the awful terrible price of war. They are a reminder of the cost of freedom.
God rest their souls.
