9 Years Later...

Nine years and three hours ago I was changed forever by the firefight that took the lives of my SOF brothers. Every year, regardless of where I am, 13 February holds a special meaning for me as well a significant number of other SF comrades who were present. May our fallen rest in peace. You are not forgotten. De Oppresso Liber!

Eleven years ago today. His memory and those that perished with him still remain.

12 years ago... it seems like yesterday

Not a day goes by that I don't remember the events that transpired on 13 February 2006 in Uruzgan Province, AFG. Yet, on the anniversary of this date every year I find myself contemplating the "what ifs" and such. For one, I would have loved to have seen Chad eventually ascend to become an SF battalion CSM. He would have been awesome, especially after all the mentorship "1stindoor" would have imparted on him.

Sgt. 1st Class Chad A. Gonsalves, Sgt. Edwin H. Daza-Chacon, Staff Sgt. Clinton T. Newman, and Sgt. Alberto D. Montrond will never be forgotten by those who knew them, worked with them, and fought alongside them.

I was informed a few weeks ago that 3/7 SFG is going to name a building on their compound after Chad. The dedication is scheduled for 23 Mar 2019. I plan on attending and speaking on his behalf and most of Chad's teammates are planning on being there as well.

What a great way to honor his memory and sacrifice.

I'll see you there as well. Spoke to Dave N. two days ago and he told me about it. Any idea what the access protocol will be to get on the compound?

Been there many times. All you need is a valid military ID card, Active, Retired, GS or Contractor CAC will get you in (Shoppette, gas station, clothing sales, AFFES stuff).

What Joker said. The (former) Bn CSM will be riding in with me. So far the only former teammate that won't be there that I know of is Dave, due to a deployment or TDY trip. I also heard Jim (our ANA MTT guy) and Tim (our FBI guy) are trying to make it.
