On this day, August 16th 2012, we lost seven brave warriors including two Navy SEALs. SO1 Patrick D. Feeks, class 265 and SO2 David J. Warsen, class 279 were killed when their Black Hawk helicopter crashed during a fierce firefight with insurgents in a remote part of Afghanistan. Take a moment today to remember these amazing men, their sacrifices, and what they have done for all of us.
To the families of Feeks, and Warsen, I am so sorry for your loss, a debt we can never repay. I will try my best though, each and every day, to live my life to the fullest and in honor of my fallen American brothers. For it is their sacrifice that truly makes America great and the world a better place. To all those I meet, I will share their story, and pass on their memory.
