We are less for never having known them, but so much more because of them

One of our Navy SEALS killed in the Chinook chopper crash over the weekend, U.S. Navy SEAL Aaron Vaughn, is remembered by his parents and his wife. I am struck by the legacy of patriotism Aaron left behind with his family. It gives his family great fortitude and comfort knowing he did this nation a great service that can never be repaid, and did so knowing that with each and every mission it could be his last and he might not return home to them. I cannot even begin to imagine the incredible pressure within these people's chests as their hearts break with the loss, yet swell with pride and honor.

These men are the best of the best the world will ever see. Aaron's mother is right. The U.S. Navy SEALS are so guarded in their missions that you never hear about them until they are taken from us. We are less for never having known Aaron Vaughn and his SEAL brothers, but we are so much more because of them.

We all don't have to be told how times are tough ... But it just got a lot worse for more than 30 families. If you can, please help a little: Navy SEAL Foundation
