A friend of mine passed on a request for prayers for my old Marine Infantry Bn this past week. The 3rd Bn, 5th Marine Regiment has been in a fight for the past ten days in Helman Prov. Their Call Sigh is "Darkhorse"

9 Marines from 3/5 were killed in the first 4 days of fighting.

Is their a link or a news source that reports on American and Nato Units who are activly engaged?

The British Papers seem to stay on top of their units activities, but hardly a peep from the American Press.

Here is a list of the men killed in 3/5 last week

Justin Allen, 23,

Brett Linley, 29,

Matthew Weikert, 29,

Justus Bartett, 27,

Dave Santos, 21,

Chase Stanley, 21,

Jesse Reed, 26,

Matthew Johnson, 21,

Zachary Fisher, 24,

Brandon King, 23,

Christopher Goeke, 23,

Sheldon Tate, 27,

I pray for their families and honor my old unit.
