Unknown Heroes

Fire of Liberty

Now while America has the privilege to know and celebrate the lives of our Medal of Honor recipients from the Civil War to Operation Iraqi Freedom, we also have a lot of unknown heroes in our Special Forces who fight under a banner of anonymity in the wilds of the world. Though my generation is less than likely to know the soldiers who serve in the units or the entirety of their missions, I'm still able to say that the elite soldiers are constantly turning over every rock, tapping communication, tracking leads, infiltrating terrorist cells, destroying the terrorist cells infrastructure and killing terrorists in an effort to secure our nation from the evil that roams in the darkness. All in all, I'm proud to have these brave but anonymous heroes standing between us and the enemy that wishes to destroy us.

*Here's a good article by Rowan Scarborough in The D.C. Examiner on our elite forces.
