For the Fallen Seals

Last week, on the 5th of August, our nation suffered a devastating loss in Afghanistan. 

A CH-47 helicopter carrying twenty-two U.S. Navy SEALS aboard was shot down by Taliban forces.  There were no survivors; truly, a terrible loss.

But saying there were no survivors is a serious misstatement because there are twenty-two families across America who are grieving the loss of fathers, brothers, cousins, sons, and comrades as you read this.
These families have but one thing on their minds right now: laying their loved ones to rest.  The regular day-to-day things of ordinary life have receded into the fog of grief.  Till the things of ordinary life come back out of that fog, these families need some outside help.

We here in Nevada are far from the home of Seal Team Six in Virginia Beach, VA, but we can reduce that gap and feel the kinship with those families by contributing what you can afford to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation and earmark it for the fallen seals in Afghanistan.

It's a small thing we can do to honor those who went in harm's way on our behalf.
