Marines lost in battle

Posted on 21. Apr, 2011 by

My youngest nephew, Tyler, is a Marine serving his second tour in Afghanistan. I got word today that his battalion lost nine men in four days.

No matter where you stand politically, please give a moment’s pause for the guys in the “Darkhorse” 3rd Battalion 5th Marines and their families today.

Those killed were:
Justin Allen, 23
Brett Linley, 29
Matthew Weikert, 29
Justus Bartett, 27
Dave Santos, 21
Chase Stanley, 21
Jesse Reed, 26
Matthew Johnson, 21
Zachary Fisher, 24
Brandon King, 23
Christopher Goeke, 23
and
Sheldon Tate, 27
