Anniversary of Extortion 17

Please take a moment today to remember the ultimate sacrifice of our fallen warriors of Extortion 17.  Five years ago on this day, August 6th, we lost 31 brave Americans.   These Special Operators were lost when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan.  To the families of these brave men, we support you, we salute you and we will never forget the sacrifices that were made for all of us.  We are forever grateful.
