#7 Lifting up, she, her name, crew and family, prayers and thanks. Amazing type A. These are the kind of folks that we should name our ships after.

Hassoon recalled how he was challenged by some of the swimming tests: “She took time to work with me, to make sure that I was prepared. She didn’t have to do that.”

Kurds came to her rescue. Didn't "we" cut funding? Forgot.

The article brought tears to my eyes as well. I didn’t enjoy the honor of knowing Shannon but her story is one I won’t forget. You must have incredible memories of the time you spent together and it’s friendship like yours that will help keep Shannon’s spirit alive for her sons.
Thanks for sharing the news of the request to immortalize this brave soldier with the naming of a warship in her honor - a fitting tribute, indeed. I’m off to assign a Google alert to watch for updates.
I’m sorry you lost your dear friend, two boys lost their amazing mother, and our country lost such a brave Patriot. RIP Dear Shannon💫

Until Valhalla..Chief.


Amen

#10 So long as men and women such as she continue to find our company worth stepping forward for, I have faith we’ll be all right. That’s a heck of an obituary.
