    Not all the names are for public release yet. One died as a result of the afghan policeman turning his gun on his American counterparts and one died as a result of the UH-60 crash. More details to follow.

    I'm sorry to add to the sad news, which is reported in a local newspaper.

    First Lieutenant Christopher Rogan, 24 year old, has been found dead in his home near Ft. Campbell. He was a graduate of the USMA and a native of Connecticut. He had served a seven month tour in Afghanistan with the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne.

    Connecticut Governor Daniel Malloy has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of Lieutenant Rogan and Captain Andrew Pedersen-Kell, 28, of Madison, a fellow USMA graduate, who was killed in Afghanistan on Monday.

    The details of that crash that we've gotten so far are awful. A sad day in a long and fruitless endeavor.

    Tough for the Army Rotary wing community. Thinking of you guys -- the courage shown flying in that environment in Afghanistan always blew me away.

    No real words. So sorry you've lost a brother, Scout. Take care of yourself, too, this takes a toll.
