They're pretty shaken up about it.. I got a call that Friday... it's the first KIA since they've been in country, this rotation.

Godspeed, Warrior, and Blue Skies.

Bio from the memorial for SSG Thomas.

The good news is that 7th SFG(A) is kicking some serious ass...the bad news is that it doesn't come cheap.
