SOFREP takes pride in recognizing the heroes of US SOCOM and we wish the Forester family our best.  I’ve served with the CCT and other AFSOC personnel and they are a solid group of individuals.  Hat tip to Mark Forester an American Hero.

6/15/2012 – HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. — Senior Airman Mark Forester’s body armor was wrapped in an American flag when he was fatally wounded by an enemy sniper’s fire Sept. 29, 2010.

This simple act is a testament to how Forester lived his life, a life respected by all who knew him.
