Green Berets honor a fallen member from Turlock, 13 years later | ModestoBee

The headquarters building for an elite Army battalion now bears the name of Sgt. 1st Class Chad Gonsalves of Turlock, who died in Afghanistan in 2006.

The 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), stationed at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, bestowed the honor at a recent ceremony. The Special Forces are better known as the Green Berets.

Gonsalves, then 31, was among four Americans killed on Feb. 13, 2006, while patrolling with Afghan soldiers in the mountainous region of Uruzgan. A roadside bomb hit their armored vehicle.
