Marine Cpl. David Sonka, 23, and his MWD Flex were killed May 4, 2013, while conducting combat operations in Farah province, Afghanistan.
They, along with SSgt Eric D. Christian, were killed when an Afghan Army soldier turned his weapon on them.
Flex was reportedly trying to save his handler when he was killed.
Both Sonka and Christian were members of the Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command and were assigned to the 2nd Marine Special Operations Battalion, out of Camp Lejeune, N.C.
May we all remember the sacrifice these three Marines made to protect their country.
