The Department of Defense announced today the death of a soldier who was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.  Staff Sgt. Patrick H. Quinn, 26, of Quarryville, Pa., died Oct. 13, in Paktika Province, Afghanistan, of injuries sustained when the enemy attacked his base with small arms fire.  He was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group, Fort Carson, Colo.

Oct 14, 2013

Four months ago, a young solder completed some of the Army's toughest training.  He was one of a select few who successfully completed the rigorous hardships and became a Green Beret.  He was sent to Afghanistan, where he was part of a small Special Forces unit, in Paktika District.  Paktika District is next to Kabul, so I had the pleasure of talking with this special young man.  I only met him twice, each time was when our two units were working a mission together.  I regret, I have no photographs of him.

Saturday evening, the LEP working in Paktika met with an informant, outside the wire, and was handed a suicide vest.  Not wanting to carry explosives into the FOB, the LEP left the vest behind.  A short time later, the LEP returned with two Green Berets.  They looked at the suicide vest and determined it was fully armed and too dangerous to move. They attached C-4 to the vest and detonated it in place.  By this time, it was dark.  They decided to leave everything and return in the morning.

Sunday morning, the LEP and two Green Berets returned to where they blew up the suicide vest.  The three were down on their hands and knees, examining the vest, to see if there was any evidentiary value.   An insurgent, wearing an ANA uniform approached, unnoticed.  The coward, emptied his AK-47 at the three.  When it was over, the young Green Beret solder, lay dead.

His name was Patrick Quinn, and I wanted you to know who he was.

Deadly Afghan attacks against U.S. service members

Updated at 9:19 p.m. ET

KABUL, AFGHANISTANSeven U.S. soldiers and a member of the NATO-led coalition were killed on Saturday in one of the deadliest days for Americans and other foreign troops in Afghanistan in recent months, as the Taliban continued attacks as part of their spring offensive.

(CNN) -- A young American woman was killed Saturday in Afghanistan in what is believed to be the first killing of a U.S. diplomat since a September attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Anne Smedinghoff, 25, was delivering books to a school, along with a U.S. civilian from the Defense Department, when a bomb struck their convoy in Zabul province in southern Afghanistan. The civilian's name has not been released.

The attack also took the lives of three U.S. service members, killed Afghan civilians, and wounded four more State Department personnel. One of them is in critical condition in a hospital in Kandahar, Kerry said.

Quantico Shooting Incident Leaves 3 Marines Dead
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, March 22, 2013 - Three active-duty Marines are dead after a shooting incident that began late last night at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va.

One of the dead was the shooter, who died of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said.

The names of the dead are being withheld, pending notification of their families.

The base provost marshal's office responded to the incident at about 11 p.m., with assistance from the Prince William County police department. The base was locked down as part of the response, and normal operations resumed early this morning.

The incident is under investigation, officials said.

In a statement released this morning, Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was saddened to learn of the shootings.

"This tragedy, as well as the tragedy in Nevada earlier this week, took the lives of Marines who volunteered to serve their nation," Little said. "His heart and his prayers are with them and their families. He believes that the legendary strength of the United States Marine Corps will ensure that they are forever remembered."

Seven Marines training at Hawthorne Army Depot, Nev., were killed March 19 in an explosion.
