Damn.

They stopped here for fuel two weeks ago, after an op in Mosul. The pilot said he'd heard good things about the IIMC Survival Course from the pilots I'd taught back in 2008.

Last night, this.

I'm not gonna post the pix of the crew -- their names haven't been officially released.

A sad day for everyone there and here.  Anyone in Iraq willing to put themselves between the terrorists and their prey, i.e. anyone and everyone who happens to be near their IEDs when they go off, deserve respect.  Ditto to anyone who takes the time to train these men to be able to protect their fellow Iraqis. 
I'll have my little girl add them to her list when she says her prayers tonight.
