On August 6, 2011, 30 US service members were killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter they were being transported in crashed in Wardak province, Afghanistan. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs were killed in the crash.
Last month, Karen and Billy Vaughn, parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn, spoke at the Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots outside the RNC Convention in Tampa. Karen brought a copy of the form letter they were sent following their son’s death.
Obama honored the fallen SEALS by sending form letters to their parents.
The Vaughns spoke with FOX News today. They blame Vice President Joe Biden for endangering their son and fellow members of SEAL Team 6 by tying them to Bin Laden raid.
Please keep the Vaughns and other military families in your thoughts and prayers.
