This has been widely circulated, but I don't think I ever posted it here. It's the eulogy given by LTC Rod Coffey, Commander 3rd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment (Wolfpack), Diyala Province, Iraq, at the January 22, 2008 memorial ceremony for his six soldiers and one Iraqi interpreter.

They were killed in a booby-trapped house in Sinsil, Iraq on January 9, 2008 during Operation Raider Harvest.

Oh man, this is very heartfelt. Thanks for posting it, Jared.
