Navy SEAL Dies Saving U.S. Doctor Kidnapped by Taliban
It is always extremely sad to report when one of our troops dies in battle, especially one who served with as much distinction as our Navy SEALS or other Special Warfare Operators. This past Saturday, in a daring raid near Kabul, one such Navy SEAL laid down his life to save a fellow American who was in trouble. Read below for the full story:
Checque’s feats of bravery are a reminder of the level of dedication and resolve displayed by our troops. It’s an expression of their selflessness and willingness to sacrifice anything – even their lives, to complete the mission or protect American lives whenever threatened by the terrorists. There are thousands of others like Navy SEAL Nicholas Checque still serving over in Afghanistan, they all deserve our gratitude.
They risk their lives for us – don’t they deserve our thanks?
There are about 68,000 troops in Afghanistan still serving, fighting the Taliban and fighting to stabilize the war torn country so that it will never again be a training and staging ground for attacks on the U.S. These brave men and women won’t be home or with their families for the holidays, they’ll be spending Christmas protecting our freedoms.
Our brave men and women in the military will be spending their Christmas protecting our safety and need our prayers and deserve a special ‘Holiday Thank You’
While we fill out our Christmas wish lists, many of our troops are thankful for just being alive because they realize that not all that serve are so lucky. They are fully aware of the risks they take and dangers they face every day, but do so willingly for our safety. For this, they deserve a small token of our appreciation around the holidays.
The holidays are the loneliest time of the year for many people serving in a normal capacity, but imagine if you are serving in the military thousands of miles from home in a foreign land. While many members of our military have supportive and loving families that send them stuff around the holidays, many do not and get very lonely, especially during the holidays.
We’ve heard over and over again from military men and women that the care package they received from us was the only piece of mail or support they have received all year and it meant the world to them.

We also continually hear that our troops really appreciate the great items that we include in our care packages, but the most appreciated item is the personalized letter from YOU that you can fill out and thank them for their service or let them know you support them.
Please help us bring a little holiday cheer to our brave men and women of the military by sending them support from home today – it might be the only mail they get all year.
These brave men and women are risking their lives thousands of miles from home and deserve every bit of support and thanks that we can give them.
We hear time and time again from our military care package recipients how much they appreciate our care packages and how much it means to them to know that people from back home took the time to think of them – it makes their day, week, and even month!
