It is sad that so many lives are sacrificed. God bless all of the families and troops that have made the ultimate sacrifice, their lives.

Another indication of our young men and women putting their lives on the line for freedom and the brotherhood that our soldiers possess to protect each other under hostile conditions.
May we, as a Nation,never forget his service. The Sergeant was awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest award that our nation gives. May he Rest in Peace and condolences to his family.

No. I won't be blessing that pile of vermin or their warmongering families.
Murdering Afghans, who never caused the US, or any other country who had not invaded them, any threat deserves condemnation.
He did not make a sacrifice. His worthless life was justifiably snuffed out by the patriots defending their families.
His evil soul now roasts in Hell. Good riddance.
