Godspeed SGT Jimenez and PVT Fouty

Some of the Blackfive authors have been involved in the searches and cannot comment other than to say that the soldiers were never forgotten and enormous resources have been utilized to find them.  Thanks to Tim C. for alerting us to the recovery of the remains of Sergeant Alex Jimenez and Private Byron Fouty.

This AP piece about the search and recovery has remarks from Private Fouty's step-father, Gordon Dibler:

..."Byron went to Iraq to help people who couldn't help themselves," he said, adding that conditions there have since improved. "I know their sacrifice was not for nothing. It was not in vain."...

Our thoughts and prayers are with their families.
