I hope you haven’t forgotten the story of Extortion 17, the greatest single-day loss of Navy Special Warfare Group personnel. The shoot down incident occurred three years ago to this date — but most Americans have no memory of it.You may be aware of the stories of Blackhawk Down or Lone Survivor, but will there ever be a film that depicts what happened that fateful day in the Tangi River valley in Afghanistan?
Billy Vaughn, the father of SEAL SOC Aaron Vaughn, wrote Betrayed to keep the story of his son’s and 29 others’ loss alive.
Please watch and share this the four-minute video, lest you forget as well. Why are there still so many unanswered questions? And add Betrayed to your summer reading list.
May God keep their souls and bless the families of the men who were sacrificed in the mission known as Extortion 17.Molon Labe, Aaron!
