Extortion 17-Remembering tragic loss of Special Ops warriors one year ago

August 5, 2012By: Susy RaybonBottom of Form

One year ago, the U.S. military suffered one of the largest one-day losses since the war in Afghanistan began and the biggest loss ever in Special Ops history. Just three months after the U.S. Navy SEALs took down Osama bin Laden, the Taliban got off a “lucky shot” with a rocket-propelled grenade that downed a Chinook CH-47 with U.S. Special Ops warriors on board; many were Navy SEALs, some were Army Special Forces and others were Airmen from a Special Tactics Team in North Carolina. The Operation was named Extortion 17, a rescue mission to extract another team of Special Forces soldiers. All aboard the helicopter died Aug. 6, 2011, in Wardak province, Afghanistan. The following sailors assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit were killed: Lt. Cmdr. (SEAL) Jonas B.

Honor Flight group to hold summer tribute to WWII vets
By The Associated Press
March 22, 2012 6:30 a.m.
An organization that flies World War II veterans to see their memorial in Washington, D.C., is planning to salute thousands of veterans at Miller Park this summer.
Stars and Stripes Honor Flight offers free flights to aging veterans so they can see the memorials erected in their honor.
The group is planning a Milwaukee tribute Aug. 11 to veterans of World War II and other conflicts.
The event will feature World War II re-enactors, as well as a patriotic tribute to veterans and the screening of an Honor Flight documentary on the stadium's large screen.
Group chairman Joe Dean said organizers planned the event after realizing there's a pent-up desire in the community to honor these heroes.
Net proceeds will go toward funding future Honor Flights.
