On this day in 2011 a Chinook helicopter, known as Extortion 17 was shot down. All hands were killed in the resulting crash. There were 38 people on board. 25 American special operations personnel, five United States Army National Guard and Army Reserve crewmen, seven Afghan commandos, and one Afghan interpreter. A MWD (Military Working Dog) was also killed in the crash. I felt the need to post this. Helping to ensure that they are never forgotten.
