SGM Brad Conner

Rest in Peace, SGM

Subject: SGM Conner

Please DL to the Group, the SF Association, and the FRG:
I regret to inform you that SGM Brad Conner, a long-serving member of the 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne), and currently serving as a Company Sergeant Major in 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne), was killed today, 9 May 2007, while serving in Iraq. He was fatally injured when his vehicle was struck by an IED. SGM Conner was well-respected by all who have served beside him, and his loss is a tragedy for all of us. Please pray that his wife and three children may find comfort in the knowledge that he died serving his nation and in the company of his Special Forces comrades.

Colonel Ken Tovo

Thank you for your service.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

May he always stand guard with the angels!

Breaking a law or violation of a regulation is not a mistake. It is willful misconduct.

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." [Samuel Adams]

COL Jack- wasn't the SGM with A/2/10 for a long time? I remember his name.

In pace requiescat SGM Conner.
You ask; What is our policy? I will say; “It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.” You ask; What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory—victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.-Winston Churchill
