Thank you for fighting for our freedom. My heart goes out to these brave mens families. Thanks for the heads up on the Evertalk page Christina.

They were the bravest and finest. They will not be forgotten. May the souls of SSgt. Massarelli and Sgt. Strachota rest in eternal peace. Someone should create a memorial page for them on Evertalk within Facebook.
