“Today’s the day I remember and honor the sacrifices our fellow Airmen made for us, our country, and our freedoms,” said Special Agent Heather Garver of the Air Force. “While we mourn the loss of our family members, and care for our injured, we must remain united. Our fallen heroes would want us to bounce back and press on with the mission we are here to carry out. We may be wounded, but we’re not broken.”

Airmen of Bagram gathered on the Eve of Christmas to mourn the loss of five men and one woman whose lives were cut short in the line of duty.  Today, Airmen gathered to pay respects to those who lost their lives this Tuesday in the deadliest attack on U.S. forces to date in 2015.

This Christmas, we remember them as well.
