RIP and God bless all of you.

Brendan, you and your brothers have had such an impact on me. It's because of all three of you that I was able to grow as a player, a person, and now a Soldier. God be with the Looney clan and all the families of the fallen.

It has been a tough deployment so far. It has been tough to have to say goodbye to our SEAL brothers as well. They have had tremendous operational success thus far and I expect that this will continue. IEDs and other operational hazards have taken lives, and/or changed lives forever in the last few months. Yet, our warriors carry on. I'm honored to be here with them. By November, it's expected that the environment (weather) will cause a lot of the activity to calm a little, and this may last up until the beginning of next year. I hope that for the rest of the year, we don't have tragedies such as this.

RIP to our warriors. You can rest now. You will never be forgotten.

CW2 McClellan lived and graduated from Battleground, WA. The governor ordered all flags at half staff yesterday throughout Washington State. It is damn hard to see such outstanding Americans loose their life on the battlefield.

Such a sacrifice. Eternal thanks.
Among the fallen, a fellow squid, and a Utahn. A very somber time in this neighborhood.
