Altman: With commandos taking brunt of battle, Tampa charity in high demand | Tampa Bay Times

Times are tough for U.S. commandos, who are leading the fight against jihadis around the globe.

Seven Green Berets have been killed in action since Oct. 4, with another killed in a training accident in Key West. And in the past year, the number of commandos severely wounded has nearly doubled, from 18 last year to 31 so far this year, according to a Tampa charitable organization.

“We just had another guy wounded and hospitalized at the burn ward in San Antonio,” said Joe Maguire, a retired SEAL vice admiral, who runs the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
