Just received this message from the grandson of a 540th Combat Engineer.


Classification: UNCLASSIFIED

Caveats: FOUO




We haven't talked in a long time. I wanted to let you know that we just lost

four of our sappers in Afghanistan to an IED. I share this with you because

I know you are a true patriot and love the Engineers.

I asked him if I could share this with our readers and he said,


Yes, the families have been notified (all 4 funerals were last week). I am

sure if you wanted the story you can google 713th Engineer Company.


So, here is the story. Ben I am so very sorry to hear this. It is always sad to lose a "brother".
