Neil C. Roberts, 32
Although I sacrificed personal freedom and many other things, I got just as much as I gave. My time in the Teams was special. For all the times I was cold, wet, tired, sore, scared, hungry and angry, I had a blast. The bad was balanced equally with the good.
— Neil C. Roberts, in a letter he left for his wife
Roberts, a Navy SEAL, survived a fall from a Chinook helicopter only to be captured and killed by enemy fighters. He had been stationed on the East Coast for a decade.
