A Virtual Cemetery created by: Lauren's Mom
Description: On August 6, 2011, an American CH-47 Chinook helicopter was shot down by insurgents in Afghanistan. The crash killed 30 U.S. servicemen, making August 6 the deadliest day for the U.S. military in the history of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Eight Afghans were in the helicopter and also died in the crash.The helicopter carried 22 Navy SEALs, most of whom were a part of the mission that killed Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011. Also killed were five U.S. Army soldiers and three U.S. Air Force soldiers.Names and photos of the 30 U.S. servicemen who died have now been released, allowing a saddened nation to properly thank and mourn these brave soldiers who gave their lives.
