More than 1,000 family members, friends and teammates from around the
country gathered here Sept. 14 to honor and remember two Special Tactics
Airmen who were killed in action last month in an insider attack.
As the procession of family members departed the memorial, nearly 2,000 Air
Commandos lined the roads and saluted to honor Capt. Matthew D. Roland, 23rd
Special Tactics Squadron, and Staff Sgt. Forrest B. Sibley, 21st Special
Tactics Squadron. Both were killed Aug. 26 at a vehicle checkpoint near Camp
