I am greatly saddened as most Americans are with the death of 30 U.S. troops which included 22 of SEAL Team 6 in Afghanistan by the Taliban. Their courage, bravery and dedication to duty must not be forgotten. As a nation mourns, I ask all my fellow Americans to display our flag at half mast from every home, business and throughout our communities in memory of those who gave their last breath protecting democracy in Afghanistan and throughout the world. Remember, freedom comes with a price.
