Faces of 30 U.S. troops killed in Chinook crash on August 6, 2011.

On August 6, 2011, Afghan insurgents shot down a CH-47 helicopter with 38 men and one military working dog on board. The crash killed everyone on the Chinook, including 30 U.S. service members (17 of whom were Navy SEALs) and eight Afghans.

Today marks the two year anniversary of that tragic day, when the U.S. military suffered its greatest one-day loss of life in the Afghanistan War.
