This is a terrible loss. This is the second fatality for this family as Ben's older brother was a former SEAL turned contractor who was killed in AFG a few years ago. RIP Ben!

Ben fought the good fight. He was a valuable asset, and shall be missed by all.

Please say a prayer for his Family. His brother was Killed in the Khost CIA bombing a year ago almost to the day.

Gone,but not forgotten.

God Bless,Rest in Peace Warrior.....:(

He was just a simple soldier and his ranks are growing thin
But his presence should remind us; we may need his like again,
For when countries are in conflict, then we find the soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.
If we cannot do him honor while he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage at the ending of his days.......:(

Perhaps just a simple headline in the paper that might say:
OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING, FOR A SOLDIER DIED TODAY. (author unknown)

The passing of our soldiers often go unnoticed and unsung by most of the world, remembered only by family and friends. Wish it were not so. May he RIP, his family will be in my thoughts and prayers.........:(

I realize it's a Canadian song,however I believe most appropriate for this occasion...:(

“As another year goes past we still remember the teammate and professional medic; we remember his wife and son, children, younger brother, parents and sister. Beers were raised and stories were told. New team members were given a standard to meet and old friends were revisited by humor. Ben, you are not forgotten and not a day goes by that you will be.”

War's truest witnesses

Those silenced souls

Whose bodies did to ours bequeath

This cheerful day

This sporting peace
