Sgt Shamus Otto Goare
Birth: May 28, 1976
Ohio, USA
Death: Jun. 28, 2005, Afghanistan

DANVILLE - Knox County has lost yet another young soldier this week. Shamus Goare, a 1994 graduate of Danville High School, was one of 16 killed in a MH-47 helicopter accident that happened on June 28 in Afghanistan.

Goare, who is the son of Judy and Charles Goare of Danville, enlisted in the Army at the age of 17 and decided to make a career out of military service, his father said this morning.

"It would have been 11 years this August," said Charles Goare.

Goare earned the rank of staff sergeant and worked as a flight engineer with the 3rd Battalion, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment and was stationed at Hunter Army Airfield in Georgia. He was executing a special operations mission Tuesday in the mountains to extract soldiers when the chopper went down.

"I learned about it [the crash] late Tuesday, but it was Wednesday when they came and told us that he was missing in action," Charles Goare said.

Goare and his wife feared for the worst, and fears were soon confirmed when they were told of their son's passing. Despite being sad over the loss of their son, they feel he died a hero who was dedicated to his country.

"He said once that if we don't fight them over there, we're going to have to fight them over here," Goare said.
