Remembering the 7 fallen Airmen who lost their lives in an HH-60G crash, March 16 2018, in Iraq. “We few, we appointed few, who do not live for riches, fame, or self-indulgence. Forged in our youths, shaped in our profession; we serve in defense of our brothers and sisters. We go into the gates of Hell, joyfully scared, but knowing full-well that this is what we were born to do. We do not entertain failure, we won't tolerate excuses. We are needed, so we go even if going means we will not return. So long as we did everything we could to save our nations warriors from harm then our mission is always a success.
So don't cry for us when we fall because we weren't crying when we fell. We charged into those fiery gates, willfully, knowing the dangers full and well. We will never leave a soldier, airman, seaman, or marine behind even if it means we have to cross into burning hell. We will give until there is no more that we can possibly give. We do these things, that others may live.” #USAF #Military #fallenairmen #respect
