They came from all over, to serve their country in Western Civilization's great struggle against barbarism - the Twenty-First Century's Global War on Terror.
They weren't just US Navy SEALs because JSOC never goes it alone, it's always a joint operation - they were US Army 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), USAF ParaRescue PJs, USAF Combat Control Team CCTs, and US Navy Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD - the Bomb Squad):
They were young, they were just like you and me; maybe you knew one of them from school, or back home on the block . . . or someone like them, who also serves.
They were honored yesterday in Norfolk, and I hope that this video receives maximum distribution, because it is important for Americans and our Allies to see this, to see the faces of our anonymous heroes who otherwise serve in secrecy . . . day in, day out . . . year in, year out . . . from now until some distant far off future time when this war finally ends . . .
A lifelong friend of mine who is a veteran of the Canadian forces sent me this video, it is the funeral of one of the SEALs:
That dog is expressing pure emotion as only a dog can - with it's entire body - prostrate, before the casket of his master.
If this doesn't tug at your heartstrings and bring tears to your eyes, then you are simply not human.
Godspeed . . .
