Special Agents Forrest Leamon, Chad Michael, and Michael Weston were killed in a helicopter accident in Afghanistan.

The agents were returning from a counter-narcotics operation when the military helicopter they were riding in crashed. Seven military service members were also killed.

Special Agent Leamon, a member of FAST Team Echo, had served in the U.S. Navy for nine years as a Cryptologic Technician, receiving campaign medals for his service in Southwest Asia and Bosnia, before joining DEA in 2002. In 2007, Agent Leamon volunteered to serve as a member of a FAST team in Afghanistan, where he served multiple FAST team tours. He is survived by his wife, their unborn child, his parents, and his sister.

Agent Leamon,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as a LEO but also when you served with the USN-especially in Bosnia and Southwest Asia. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
