On the 8th of May I was notified by LTC Q (3rd Brigade Rear-Detachment Commander) that our Brigade has suffered the loss of two of our soldiers from HHT 3d BDE.
The soldiers lost their lives while conducting combat operations in Iraq. The next of kin of our fallen soldiers have been notified. I ask you for your prayers for these Sledgehammer soldiers and their families.
Lord, throw open the gates of Your Kingdom and welcome these Heroes to their rightful home.
