Please say a prayer for the "Dark Horse" 3d Battalion, 5th Marines and their families. They are fighting it out in Afghanistan & they have lost 12 marines in 4 days.  Nothing has been said in the media about these guys because no one in the media seems to care. We know Americans care. They are: Justin Allen, 23; Brett Linley, 29; Matthew Weikert, 29; Justus Bartett, 27; Dave Santos, 21;  Chase Stanley, 21; Jesse Reed, 26;  Matthew Johnson, 21; Zachary Fisher, 24; Brandon King, 23; Christopher Goeke, 23; Sheldon Tate, 27. All are Marines that gave their lives for YOU this week. Please take a minute to honor their sacrifice.

Only those who have been there have any idea, the least the others can do is keeping them in their minds and hope for the best and be glad they can have the (relatively) good life because others are prepared to do what they do. People should make it a mantra to sit down and think about people in those situations every time they complain about the small things in life that don't go the way they want.

Brave young men taking the fight to the enemy to keep us safe here at home. I'm grateful for courageous soldiers like these, and that's an understatement, who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for my family and country. Thank you for posting this, and thank you to the men and women who serve and have served.

With all due respect, this occurred in 2010. By no means could that ever minimize the tragedy, but it might explain the absence of media attention. Regardless, may we always remain humbled by and grateful for the sacrifice of all our armed forces.

My apologies.....this was info forwarded to me by a friend and I should have been more diligent.  Nonetheless, I hope the sentiment rings true for all...particularly around Christmas time.

There is never a bad time to thank our veterans.

Don't take that away from these men, warriors want to die in battle. It's ok to mourn them but never pity them.

Absolutely. And no need to apologize. It just caught me off guard so I did a little digging and wanted to share that information back.

We still have 9,800 troops in Afghanistan, away from their families and loved ones over Thanksgiving and Christmas.
