Decorated MARSOC gunnies killed in Afghanistan

Two elite special operations Marines were killed in combat Sunday in northwestern Afghanistan.

Gunnery Sgt. Daniel J. Price, 27, of Holland, Mich., and Gunnery Sgt. Jonathan W. Gifford, 34, of Palm Bay, Fla., died during a morning patrol in Badghis province, a Marine official told Marine Corps Times on Monday.

Both were critical skills operators assigned to Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command. Price belonged to 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion out Camp Pendleton, Calif. Gifford was from 2nd MSOB out of Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Although they came from separate commands within MARSOC, Price and Gifford were assigned to the same special operations task force in Afghanistan, the Marine official said.

A Purple Heart recipient, Price experienced ample combat over the last several years. He deployed three times each in support of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, according to a Marine Corps news release.

On Nov. 10, the Marine Corps' birthday, Price was awarded a Bronze Star with "V" device for his actions during a 2009, battle in Afghanistan's Farah province. When the remote weapon on his vehicle was destroyed, he climbed on top to man its MK19 grenade launcher, according to his medal citation. As enemy rounds whipped by, Price stayed put - holding his position for four hours and killing "numerous" insurgents in the process.

Price enlisted in 2003 and attended the Marine Corps' Basic Reconnaissance Course a year later, according to the Marine Corps' news release. He was a member of Camp Pendleton's 1st Recon Battalion before joining MAROC in 2008.

Gifford was just shy of 15 years in the service. A member of the Corps' force reconnaissance community prior to joining MARSOC, he also completed multiple combat deployments and earned a Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with combat "V," the Marine official said.

It's not immediately clear how Price and Gifford died. Parts of Badghis province, which borders Turkmenistan, have been marked by violence for the past several years, according to a report published late last year by the Naval Postgraduate School.

Sgt. Justin M. Hansen, also a member of 2nd MSOB, was shot and killed during a house sweep in Badghis province only one week ago. He was on his second deployment to Afghanistan.

I prepared for Korea in the 1950's, I never had to worry about some one I was stationed with shooting me, until I got to France and the Algerian war broke out, most of the Vichy French Nazi French from WW#11 we had to fight in the middle east came back to France from Algeria and fought for independence for Algeria, DeGalle took over the Government as a dictator, kicked the American Military out of France, then negotiated a deal to make Algerians French citizens, France today is stuck with 35 million Moslems

If you notice there is a lot recently that say Under Investigation Well here is why. It was just on the news tonight.

quote:
A recent spate of deadly attacks by Afghan forces on U.S. troops has prompted the U.S. military in Afghanistan to change its policy on arming its members, ordering that service members now be armed at all times, inside and outside their bases.

In the most recent "green on blue" attack, an Afghan policeman turned his weapon on U.S. troops Friday, killing two soldiers.

This is just the latest in a deadly two-week span for U.S. forces, ABC's Muhammad Lila reports. Nineteen U.S. troops and one aid worker have been killed in Taliban attacks in the past two weeks, nine of them shot to death in cold blood by rogue Afghan soldiers or policemen.

The number of "green on blue" attacks this year already exceeds the total for last year. Since the beginning of 2012, there have been 31 attacks resulting in 39 deaths, far more than last year's 21 total attacks.

U.S. military and Afghan police will continue to work side by side as control of the country exchanges hands. In order to counter recent attacks, U.S. military leadership has altered its previous policy on when and where troops should be armed.

A senior U.S. military officer at International Security Assistance Force headquarters in Kabul told ABC's Martha Raddatz forces throughout Afghanistan are now required to carry a loaded magazine in their personal weapon.

"Before, we usually did that only when we went out the gate," the official told Raddatz. "[Now] it applies everywhere. I am sitting in my office with a mag in my pistol. A round is not chambered, but I am ready to go at a moment's notice."

The "green on blue" attacks might be shaking the trust between Afghan and ISAF partners in Afghanistan.

Earlier this year, Gen. John Allen, commander of all NATO troops in Afghanistan, counseled young Marines on how to react after these types of attacks.

"This is the time for professionalism," Allen said. "This is the time for trust and confidence, and this is not the time for revenge."

Marines on the ground told Raddatz earlier this year that they trust their Afghan partners, but the attacks have gotten worse since then.

The Taliban often claim responsibility for the attacks, and a recent Taliban-produced video showed an Afghan soldier receiving a hero's welcome after killing two U.S. soldiers.
