    Thanks for posting this. It needs to be seen.

    It makes me sad that this forum has trended toward a degree of selfishness I find disheartening in our candidates. If the title of this thread had had "LOA" in it, it would be at the top every day. Think about that, candidates. His body was escorted home by his twin brother. Talk about grief.

    To LT Lambka, well done! Be thou at Peace.

    He was called. He served. He is counted.

    This is something my generation never faced -- classmates being killed in battle. It's very sad that recent classes have more deceased classmates than classes in the 80s.

    A sobering reminder of what our military faces every day. RIP Lieutenant.

    I posted a thread 6 days ago about the death of another 2010 grad - 0 replies.

    My apologies for not noting it. Connectivity is limited where I am. I think it fell so fast I didn't even see it.

    That class has had a rough summer. Three classmates killed in under 6 weeks.

    Rest in peace, LT Lambka. I am thankful that we have men like LT Lambka defending our country.

    My respects go to him and his family for their invaluable service.

    God Bless them...my thoughts and prayers to them and their families. I hope that our response was swift and devastating. I hope these brave men and women have what they need to accomplish the mission....

    There's really no swift and devastating retaliation. It's just not how it works, unfortunately. As for accomplishing the mission...well...that's a whole different rabbit hole.

    Our thoughts are with his family and our thanks for Todd for his service and sacrifice.

    This is the reality of our country at war and the sometimes dangerous aspect of serving in the military, every applicant should keep this foremost in their minds.
