I knew most of them. Not a day goes by that I don't think about one or more of those guys.

ETA: Ag, where exactly did you get those pics??

I recently read a sad story about this tragic event that really bothers me. It was stated that all 22 SEALs were cremated without their families' permission. If true, why would this happen?

http://thepatriotinfidel.wordpress.c...es-permission/

ETA...this is not a site I frequent. This was emailed to me and the only reason I clicked/read was due to the story about the SEALs being cremated.

RIP Warriors.

I’ve learned by reading the forums that Ed Darack has rubbed people the wrong way. With that in mind he did write an excellent book about the men of the Extortion 17 crash. I plan on reading it again soon. RIP gents.

I watched/heard the 2013 press conference concerning Extortion 17. I have to admit that a some of what was discussed of which I was unaware. There were families of the fallen that spoke as well and retired flag officers, etc. I am taking the time to briefly let my Brother special operations types that I don't think I will ever completely recover from this experience.
