3 CSOs KIA Aug 10 2012

I wanted to update the community that 3 of my brothers have been killed in Puze Village, Helmand Afg. They were killed by an Afghan dressed as an ALP member. I will not go into specific details in order to keep some peace with friends or family that may be reading this. The main point is Matt, Ryan and Sky were excellent operators and Marines. Our community has been hit hard in recent weeks. This adds up to 6 solid seasoned CSOs that have been killed. Matt was a natural born leader and has excelled in every aspect in his life. This was to be his last deployment (4 total) due to his acceptance to law school. Ryan had participated in the invasion of Iraq, he was also lightly profiled in the HBO series Generation Kill. Ryan possessed other worldly experience and skills that 1st MSOB and MARSOC wont get back. He was also a member on this site. Sky was an extremely smart insanely brave EOD tech. EOD techs in MARSOC are not your average add ons. This was Sky's 2nd tour with MARSOC and had unlimited potential in EOD skills and team skills. He could shoot just as good as the team guys and could always be relied upon to attack an IED. The fourth man involved was shot in the fore arm. He is ok and was joking after a few hours, true to his personality. He will be back in the US in a few days. All these men will be missed and their stories told for ever. RIP.
