As some of you may know, my brother is in the "no slack" 186575_1260294264_2950387_n.jpg airbourne infantry. A few days ago they were ambushed on a mission, there SGT was killed along with two other soldiers. Multiple others wounded. My heart goes out to the families of the fallen. I still have my brother and I couldnt imagine what you are going through and how hard it must be. I will personaly morn each and everyone of you!! Thanks for what you gave! Im not sure i would have been able to give as much. Thank you for protecting my brother and the rest of your team..

A moment of silence for SGT Burgess, Feldaus, and Faulkner......


Remember in life to be ALL THAT YOU CAN BE, wether or not you are for or against any war!
don't take your days by the river for granted....

That is VERY sad news my friend (and the first that I have heard about it). Those men that fell are true heroes! I'm glad that they were there, to protect your brother and their friends. There is no greater friendship, than to sacrifice your life for someone else's. May God smile upon their fellow troops, their families and their friends during this difficult time. God bless them, and God bless the USA!

As a veteran myself , and after working recently at the joint base Mchord /Lewis Me and my families deepest condolences go out to these soldiers. I for one will never take for granted the bravery shown and sacrifices made by these young men and women who proudly serve our country ! We will keep your brother in our prayers and do so till you can tell us that he is safely home .Hang in there NWK hopefully the worst is over for him!

God bless the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles. And God rest their fallen comrades. It's a hard and tradgic thing to lose friends that way.

It's such a hard thing when our soldiers die defending our country.I personally have had 4 really close friends die during service:(,and another 2 with honorable discharge for being hurt.Makes me sad any time i hear about more of our true heroes dieing. I think this is a documentary that every body should watch so u really know what our people are going through.Rest in peace to ALL who have fallen defending our country.http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...sg=AFQjCNE3kFIY8aFRqywG2Y0tHolxlWFpNg&cad=rja

Never done a link before so i hope it works if not i will figure it out.
