Matt over at Froggy Ruminations confirms the loss of fellow SEALS in yesterday's helo crash in Afghanistan.
He's still waiting to hear if they were more than just fellows. Please stop by an express your support and sympathies.
MSNBC Reports 8 SEALs perished in the crash. That is an entire SEAL squad. This is now the largest single casualty incident in SEAL Team history. In Vietnam, 5 SEALs died in a helo crash. I just got off the phone with my father-in-law who was in the Teams when that happened.
Matt recommends donations to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation for the benefit of these families.
