Military Photo of the Day: Feb. 24, 2015

By The Editors Published on February 24, 2015

U.S. Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion and U.S. Navy LT (SEAL) Brendan Looney were roommates at the U.S. Naval Academy. These friends and brothers in arms are now buried side-by-side at Arlington National Cemetery after making the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan, respectively. Their story of sacrifice is told in Brothers Forever, which was written by Tom Sileo, a Senior Editor at The Stream, and U.S. Marine Col. Tom Manion (Ret.), 1st Lt. Travis Manion’s father.

Today would have been LT (SEAL) Brendan Looney’s 34th birthday. Every day, we honor Brendan, Travis and all of America’s fallen heroes, as well as their families. Because of you, we are free.
