Three Georgia Army National Guard Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 108th Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisition (RSTA) Squadron currently supporting Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan were killed on Thursday, June 4. It's a heartbreaking loss the Georgia National Guard.

Three soldiers from the same squad killed in Afghanistan on Thursday.Maj. Kevin M. Jenrette, 37, of Lula, Ga., Staff Sgt. John C. Beale, 39, of Riverdale, Ga., and Spc. Jeffrey W. Jordan, 21, of Rome, Ga. died near Kapisa, Afghanistan of wounds sustained from an improvised explosive device and small arms fire.

FOX 5 profiled the squadron last month as they trained in Shelby, Mississippi. Beale, Jenrette and Jordan had all undergone the same specialized training.

Georgia's Governor Sonny Perdue issued the following statement upon notification of the death of the three Georgia Army National Guardsmen.

"Today's news that Major Kevin Jenrette, SSG John Beale and SPC Jeffrey Jordan died serving in Afghanistan is a sobering reminder of the dangers our citizen soldiers face there everyday. I know the families' of these Guardsmen have broken hearts and though we can not comprehend the loss they are feeling, Mary and I join them in mourning. I have personally visited with our troops both here and over seas and I am always deeply moved by their dedication to serve others. These men and women go where they are asked on a moment's notice, leaving behind families and communities that miss them dearly. It is our responsibly to do all that we can to comfort these families and all of the families with a loved one in the line of duty."

"The recent death of three Georgia Guardsman is very traumatic to our Georgia National Guard family," said Maj. Gen. Terry Nesbitt, Georgia's Adjutant General. "Their deaths occurring so early in the deployment of the 48th Brigade underscores the very real challenges facing our Soldiers and the inherent risks of the mission. We extend our heartfelt condolences and support to the families of these brave Guardsmen."

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of these brave men. As the wife of a retired soldier, I pray for our troops and their families daily.

Lori, I am so glad to see other military wives keep the memory of these men and women that are fighting for our county alive. We live over in Japan and personally know how these lost lives hit home so hard. Thank you.
