Today we honor a hero, Tech. Sgt (ret) Jeffrey Bray. This #Airman served as a combat controller and warrior during the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu. His valiant actions helped shape how Special Tactics trained for urban warfare and later led to him receiving the Silver Star medal. Nearly 100 friends and family gathered as Bray was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery, Va., on Dec. 30.

Battle of Mogadishu hero passes, leaves behind legacy

If you were stuck on a remote island and could only bring three things with you, what would they...
