30+ dead, 22 SEALs

Postby scottaa1 » Sat Aug 06, 2011 3:18 pm

What a tremendous loss. Condolences to their families. :,-(

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing at least 30 Americans,


None of the 22 SEAL personnel killed in the crash were part of the team that killed bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan, but they belonged to the same unit.


The dead included 22 SEALs, three Air Force air controllers, seven Afghan Army troops, a dog and his handler, a civilian interpreter and the helicopter crew

I read something today that implied our air traffic patterns had become predictable...

What a horrible shame. :,-(
