Our hearts are heavy with the news from Afganistan.  The Thursday attack on 26-AUGUST outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport Kabul, Afghanistan, killed 13 U.S. service members supporting Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. There were 11 Marines, 1 Navy corpsman and 1 Army soldier killed as the result of an enemy attack while supporting non-combatant evacuation operations.  

The troops killed include a local Marine, Jared Schmitz who lived in nearby Wentzville MO. God Bless our Heroes. Protect all our troops deployed.
