Throughout the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, the US Military’s contingent of Special Forces has played a significant and critical role, often under the most dangerous of circumstances. Over the years, Special Forces soldiers and their families have made enormous sacrifices for their country and Connecticut’s military families have not been spared this sacrifice. On March 11, 2013, Connecticut native Capt. Andrew Pedersen-Keel was killed in action in Eastern Afghanistan while serving as the commander of his special forces detachment. He was 28 years old.
