The Worst Day, By Far

On 20 June our mounted-combat-patrol was ambushed. In the ensuing shoot-out, we killed two of them, but they got one of us. Below is a link to a Stars and Stripes article commemorating 1SG John Blair.

The same week 1SG died, we learned that another one of our Embedded Training Team members, SFC Kevin Dupont, had died of wounds suffered in an IED explosion.  SFC Dupont was blown-up in February and lingered near death at Brooke Army Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, for several months. 

RIP 1SG John Blair and SFC Kevin Dupont.
