PHOTOS: Warriors Mourn Deaths of Six Soldiers at Christmas

A day before Christmas Eve, men and women at Bagram Airfield honored and buried the six fallen soldiers who were killed by a suicide bomber.

The six airmen perished after a suicide bomber attacked the Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.

“Today’s the day I remember and honor the sacrifices our fellow Airmen made for us, our country, and our freedoms,” announced Special Agent Heather Garver, Air Force Office of Special Investigations and part of Task Force Crimson. “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.”
