    As an avid dog lover, that photo is very heartbreaking. I have 2 dogs of my own and love them both very much. Just goes to show how loyal a dog really is to his owner.

    They were from the same SEAL team (seal team 6), but none of those killed were on the Bin Laden raid. That was from the article that I read a couple of weeks back, so that may have changed.

    They were not. Some were from the same unit, though.

    I'd imagine that some of them were on the Bin Laden mission, but the government won't say it to protect the families of the fallen. Doubt that anyone will release the names of those on the raid, at least not in the near future.

    RIP Soldier. Heartbreaking pictures.

    That is a good point. I wondered that as well.
