American Special Operator Killed in Raid to Rescue American Doctor from the Taliban

The courage and sacrifice of American Special Operations forces is seldom fully understood except by those within their elite communities.  On occasion, we receive a glimpse of what they do for our country.  Seeking only to complete the missions - the most difficult missions - not to receive personal recognition or accolades.  Silent warriors, and the families who support them in the most difficult of personal circumstances.  Often not knowing where the operator is, when he will be coming home, or if he will be coming home.  

Recently, one such Special Operator was killed in the raid to rescue an American doctor from the Taliban.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and Team members.  The story, from ABC news, appears here:
