Extortion 17 – Remember Our Brothers
Please take a moment today to remember the ultimate sacrifice of our fallen warriors of Extortion 17. Two years ago on this day, August 6th, we lost 31 brave Americans. These special operators were lost when their CH-47 Chinook was shot down while on the way to reinforce a group of Army Rangers who were engaged in the unforgiving Wardak Province of Afghanistan. To the families of these brave men, we salute you and will never forget the sacrifices that were made for all of us. We are forever grateful.

Where is the pic of Michael Strange that his dad referred to? Was this a Predator pic? Were there any others ID'd in it and are there any other pix?
murphy's law is the coin of the realm in this administration, have you ever seen a collection of more inept stooges in one administration than this one, obama, biden, clinton, holder, rice, panetta, and that easter island headed kerry, there's not one ounce of morality or principle in this entire quagmire of political stooges-i.e. obama called benghazi a phony scandal -look what these loons have done to our heroes...eric holder to terry, clinton to stevens, smith, woods, and dougherty- if these jackals aren't screaming the 5th amendment at congressional hearings than they're screaming "phony scandals" if any one of them had a scintilla or honor they would instantly resign for betraying every american with ongoing and total ineptitude. today is benghazi plus 11 months and still not one american has been told why our heroes were left behind during a 12 hour fire-fight to be burned alive and butchered- where were these moral degenerates during these 12 hours....obama, clinton, panetta et al-how could the pentagon be ok with leaving our heroes behind...of this much i'm sure ..the american people will never be told! we haven't seen this level of betrayal and corruption since caligula !!!!
I still believe they were set up, and it sickens me to no end. The day of reckoning is coming, when the cowards who sacrificed our valiant warriors will answer for their sins. There will be no hole deep enough to hide and they will pray for the mountains to crash down on them and hide them from His wrath, and those we have lost will look on and smile their approval.
This was so sad. From June 28th to July 4th was really hard. Then as I was writing the dates down at work, I just continually noticed how we were growing closer and closer to Aug 6th. I cried in the morning and was visually upset throughout the day. It is hard to believe 2 years has passed. But they are not forgotten. Not by me and not by many others.
Thoughts and Prayers Chris - this level of one day loss is hard to comprehend with this set of men (and dog).
Thanks for the poignant reminder.
Rest In Peace warriors of this great Republic.
most of these grieving families believe our political moral degenerates betrayed our seals, especially the head stooge who repeatedly spike the ball by telling the world about seal team six's involvement obama's entire administration should resign en-masse for this breach of treachery against our heroes and against all americans....http://www.wnd.com/2013/07/navy-seals-father-obama-sent-my-son-to-his-death/
@NathanRichardson are the proceeds going to charity? Cause it appears that the seller is trying to profit off of their deaths for his own good. Not sure how I feel about this.
@AmericanproPro I don't understand why Obama would want them dead?
@Jake75 @AmericanproProwe have the greatest military instutions in the world, the greatest military minds in the world. they are supposed to advise our political moral degenerates about the pros and cons of each potential war arena and its flaws-so how is it that the military has become more or less a boot licking valet to these knuckle-headed political retards. for example, benghazi- how were they convinced to leave behind our heroes to be butchered and burned alve in benghazi during a 12 hour fire-fight? ok, leon panetta is a mr magoo stooge but there must have been one general who believes in not leaving behind our heroes behind. as monica crowley would say, "what the bleep just happened?" this administration has virtually razed to the ground a republic that has prospered for 237 years and did it in just one administration, it has betrayed us all and we have not seen this level of of corruption since caligula !!!!
