  1. Tears me up to read such stories. God bless them all and provide some measure of comfort for their grief stricken families. I don’t think that’s possible, but it’s what you say in awkward situations like this.

  2. If they were all marines, they would be assigned to Force Recon and may have had a corpsman with them as well. They all died in the service of their country! Blessings upon the families and survivors!

  3. Marine Corps MARSOC (Marine Corps Special Operations Command) are officially called “Raiders”.
    The name Raiders builds upon the legacy that the Marine Corps “Raiders” built during WWII in the Pacific Islands.
    The Raiders are the Best of the Best.
    The Navy Corpsmen who serve with the Raiders and Recon are Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman (SARC) highly qualified Special Operators.
    This is a not only a loss for the Navy, Marine Corps, Special Operations Command, but the Nation.
    Prayers to their families and friends.

  4. Absolve, we beseech Thee, O Lord,
    the souls of Thy servants,
    from every bond of sin,
    that being raised in the glory of the resurrection,
    they may be refreshed among the Saints and Elect.
    Through Christ our Lord.


  5. God bless them.

    Is anyone looking into the bullshit “green” lubricants and fuels our Armed Forces use to assuage the mindless Enviro-Nazis? I’d like to know the extent of “accidents” our Armed Forces have suffered over the past 8 years, or so.

    I’ve shot with a lot of Spec Opps guys. I love them all. Most have become friends. I prefer MARSOC. Those fuckers know their shit. Especially the door kickers. This is a huge loss for America.
