Valor Was Everywhere That Day

Valor was everywhere that day, and the real heroes are the nine men who made the ultimate sacrifice so the rest of us could return home.  It is their names, not mine, that I want everyone to know.

Spc. Sergio Abad, Cpl. Jonathan Ayers, Cpl. Jason Bogar, 1st Lt. Jonathan Brostrom, Sgt. Israel Garcia, Cpl. Jason Hovater, Cpl. Matthew Phillips, Cpl. Pruitt Rainey, and Cpl. Gunnar Zwilling.  The Chosen Few.
