Chinook Down

Kabul, Afghanistan: United States and Afghan troops today reached the site of a downed military helicopter that crashed in a mountainous area this week. The United States military said Wednesday that the aircraft appeared to have been brought down by hostile fire.

Keep the fallen heroes and their families in your prayers.

The milbloggers have full coverage of the crash and the
16 brave troops whose bodies have been recovered.

Matthew Heidt, a Navy SEAL, has details on the crew. Writes Heidt: This is a very sad day for the Naval Special Warfare Community, and I would ask that those of you who are able, will donate to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation for the benefit of these families.

Done. (by Michelle Malkin)

Hugh Hewitt interviewed a number of milbloggers on today's show, including FroggyRuminations, Col. Bay, Smash, Blackfive as well as regulars Mark Steyn, Lileks and, from Baghdad, Michael Yon.

Hugh urged the audience to contribute to the United Warrior Survivor Foundation which is "dedicated to the surviving spouses of Special Operations military personnel killed in the line of duty since 9/11. UWSF offers Survivor Transition Assistance to surviving spouses, along with educational counseling, financial guidance, investment planning, and other programs." You can contribute here.

Hugh asked civilian bloggers to post a link to the Foundation. The url is easy to remember:

SoldiersAngels can also use as many sponsors as there are out there.


God Bless America and Her Fallen Heroes.

Good Job. I could not find any mention of this on TV last night, even Fox. The Bee did have it on page one. They sometimes surprise.

the indexes easily.
