MR says: One of the SEALs in a helicopter that was recently shot down in Afghanistan was a returned missionary from Utah. Our thoughts are with the families of all the lost soldiers.

Jason Workman knew since he was a young boy that he wanted to be a Navy SEAL.

He knew the odds of making the elite fighting force were slim. Workman not only accomplished his goal, but he also became a member of the elite Navy SEAL Team 6.

Saturday, Petty Officer First Class Jason Workman, 32, was among the 31 Americans killed, including 22 members of SEAL Team 6, when their helicopter was shot down by insurgents in Afghanistan.

My heart goes out to his family. I want to thank them for sharing him with America. He has paid the ultimate price and should NOT be forgotten. May God bless his family and all who knew him. "Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." I am humbled by his sacrifice. Thank you, Brother Workman, for your loving kindness.
