Heroes of the Week: 13 Fallen U.S. Service Members


Throughout the week, our ACC Team searches through emails and news articles looking for someone who deserves to be the Hero of the Week… Find out how you can nominate a Hero of the Week at the bottom of the page.


There are no better heroes to recognize this week than the 13 servicemen and women who lost their lives in the bombing at the airport in Kabul. It was the deadliest day for American forces in the past decade of the 20-year war in Afghanistan.

For their service and their bravery, we’d like to recognize them all as our heroes this week here on ACC. Our prayers are with their families and all our servicemen and women who are in harm’s way.

Watch this Good Morning America clip honoring those 13 service members as they returned home:
