A member of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s FAST (Foreign-deployed Advisory and Support Team),Special Agent Forrest Leamon died this week in Afghanistan.
He was killed in the line of duty, when the helicopter he was riding in went down following a firefight with Taliban drug traffickers.
He was 37.
He leaves behind a wife, Ana. They were were expecting their first child in February.
Forrest was a friend and shipmate, one of my students, a fellow teammate and Owl, and a hell of a guy.
Fair winds and following seas, Forrest. You will be missed.
Don’t expect much from me today.
