30 American troops killed in Afghanistan tragedy

From the Associated Press:
Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans, most of them belonging to the same elite Navy SEALs unit that killed Osama bin Laden, as well as seven Afghan commandos, U.S. officials said Saturday. It was the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decade-old war.
Prayers go out to the families of these American heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe. Freedom is not free....
