A Spanish general once spied upon a Roman legion both in practice and in battle and his report to to his royalty was quite chilling and is often quoted within the United States military: “Roman maneuvers are bloodless battles; their battles are bloody maneuvers.”
The essence here is that the Roman Legion was strong, organized and well practiced. When a soldier dies during "practice" or a maneuver there should be hell to pay... and pay, and pay. Why do I suspect none of that will happen. (When are veterans or their families ever taken care of?) And why are the exact details not being made known? — It is obviously pretty shameful for both men died during fitness training but the details of how they died were not made known. This is an egregious omission which obviously suggest incompetence at a severe and deadly level..
The United States lost two of its elite soldiers, one who was married and a decorated SEAL who received a "...Bronze Star with Combat Valor, the Purple Heart, the US Navy/Marine Corps Commendation Medal with Valor, the US Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal with Valor, and other campaign and service medals. The other was a young kid who served in battle and in the photo up at the New York Post is proudly displaying the American flag while working in that theater.
From the New York Post:
Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Seth Cody Lewis of Queens and Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Brett Allen Marihugh of Livonia were found unresponsive Friday at the bottom of the Combat Swimming Training Facility at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story. Lewis, 32, died Friday and Marihugh, 34, died Sunday, officials said.
