    In Memorium: SFC Riley Stephens * US Special Forces

    Post by MyZone on Fri Dec 07, 2012 9:08 pm

    Alot of us have served, or are serving now. When someone you know or have met is KIA or WIA, it is always a sad day....

    SFC Riley Stephens was a guy I had met on a dozen occasions. I last talked with him about 3 weeks before he was KIA. A career soldier; he gave the ultimate sacrifice earlier this year.

    I just thought I'd post some info on him in Memorium:

    He was with the teams mentioned in the book " Lions of Kandahar"
