Rest easy brothers, for you are in a better place.

I'm pissed off, I wish these MFer's would fight face to face. I'm so sick of this IED BS!

Sorry for the Rant...
May God grant you three Heroes a special place in His Mighty Army and pour blessings and peace on your families. SFC Bohle's Uncle is a retired 18A (Former 5th SFG(A), Berlin Detachment and 1/10 SFG(A) - COL Frank Bohle. Note: One of their Team Mates was badly injured in this incident and is fighting for his life - please lift him up in your prayers and thoughts....
Rest in peace SFC Bohle, SFC McCloskey and SSG Mills. Your sacrifices will not be forgotten :(
