2 JULY 2015 - On 23 April 2007, enemy forces attacked a 5th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment Patrol Base in As Sadah, Iraq. The attack resulted in the death of nine Troopers and the wounding of at least twenty more. We will never forget these American Paratroopers of the airborne reconnaissance team who gave their lives for their country:

1LT Kevin Gaspers
SSG Kenneth Locker
SSG Clint Moore
SGT Michael Vaughan
SGT Brice Pearson
SGT Randell Marshall
SPC Jerry King
SPC Michael Rodriguez
PFC Garrett Knoll

These heroes gave the ultimate sacrifice to their country but their legacy lives on in the hearts of those who continue to serve today. We are humbled by their service and the courageous example they set for us all. In their honor we name our next Tribute Puppy RECON.

See how we are transforming lives!
