In some tragic news, the U.S. military has sadly declared two Navy SEALs as deceased after they went missing during a mission to stop Iranian weapons from reaching Yemen. These brave SEALs were part of an operation in the Arabian Sea to intercept Iranian weapons that were destined for Houthi forces in Yemen. Can you believe that Iran is continuing to support these terrorists?

The search and rescue operation for the missing SEALs lasted for a grueling 10 days, but unfortunately, they were not able to be found. The U.S. Central Command (Centcom) released a statement saying that recovery operations are now underway. It’s heartbreaking to lose these two Naval Special Warfare warriors, but we must forever honor their sacrifice and bravery.
According to reports, the SEALs were attempting to board an unflagged ship carrying Iranian-made weapons when one SEAL fell into the sea and the other went in after him to try and save him. This mission took place at night, near the coast of Somalia. Can you imagine the darkness and danger these SEALs faced in their attempt to protect us from Iran’s malicious activities?
The seized weapons included components for medium-range Iranian ballistic missiles and anti-ship cruise missiles. The Houthi rebels have been using these weapons to target both U.S. military and commercial ships in the Red Sea. It is clear that Iran is actively causing instability in the region and blatantly violating international law.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who was being treated in the hospital at the time, was unaware of the mission when it took place. This highlights the dedication and commitment of our military, even in the face of personal challenges.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends, and fellow SEALs of these fallen heroes. We must continue to expose and interdict Iran’s malicious actions in order to protect our interests and establish freedom in the region.
