On 6 August 2011, a Boeing CH-47 Chinook military helicopter was shot down while transporting a quick reaction force attempting to reinforce an engaged unit of Army Rangers in Wardak province, west of Kabul, Afghanistan. All 38 people on board were killed, including 25 American special operations personnel, five United States Army National Guard and Army Reserve crewmen, seven Afghan commandos, and one Afghan interpreter, and a U.S. military working dog. It is considered the worst loss of U.S Military life in the Afghanistan campaign.
"Eighty per-cent of the U.S. deaths in Afghanistan over the past twelve years have occurred during the four years of the Obama administration. 15,000 US soldiers have come home injured or maimed during that same 4-year period" (compared to 2700 during the previous 8 years). -- Karen Vaughn
