A Prayer For The Fallen

Operation Gothic Serpent.

You know it as Black Hawk Down.

18 died and 73 were wounded to accomplish the mission.  And they did accomplish the mission.

In the end their efforts were for naught, thrown away by people who were not worthy to polish their boots.

SFC Randy Shuggart and MSC Gary Gordon were each posthumously awarded the MoH for their heroic actions during the engagement.
