Memorial Day 2018: Remembering the Ultimate Sacrifice made in Afghanistan

 

Written by Staff Sgt. Jared Duhon
438th Air Expeditionary Wing

U.S. Air ForceKabul, Afghanistan – Memorial Day is a day to ensure those who have fallen are never forgotten. And whether a few years, 20 years, or more, there can never be enough thanks given for those 13 who fought and made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan this past year.

Remembering those 13 warriors, who fought for what was right and were sadly taken from the fight too early, is a small token of appreciation that can be given. It only takes a moment to think about the lives these people might have lived, each different from the last and yet all still had the same goal of making a better place for those who cannot fight. This small gesture will ensure that their contribution to the missions they fought for will not go in vain.
