From Kabul, Afghanistan via NYT:
United States and Afghan troops today reached the site of a downed military helicopter that crashed in a mountainous area this week, the United States military announced. The military said Wednesday that the aircraft appeared to have been brought down by hostile fire.
Keep the fallen heroes and their families in your prayers.

This is a very sad day for the Naval Special Warfare Community, and I would ask that those of you who are able, will donate to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation for the benefit of these families.
