Navy Petty Officer First Class Michael J. Strange and 29 other U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan on August 6th, 2011 on what is one of the deadliest days for the U.S. during the war in Afghanistan. Strange was killed when his helicopter was shot down by the Taliban southwest of Kabul. He was a part of the Navy SEAL Team 6, the same unit that had killed Osama bin Laden only months prior. His parents recall how papers and military leaders talked about the progress being made overseas after their son was killed. Despite having collected hundreds of articles and papers claiming why and how Strange died, they still want to know why he was in a decades-old helicopter, he was cremated without their permission, and the autopsy photos show a different story than they were told.
