Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif., a naval reservist who served in Afghanistan: “Last night I went to Arlington National Cemetery. I took my two daughters, who are here in town. We saw what people normally see, the changing of the guard, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the tomb of President Kennedy. “But I made it a point to go to area 60, the area where there are many recent interments from the people, from our veterans, from our brethren, who have served in the Global War on Terrorism. “On that hallowed ground, I made it a point to seek out someone I served with, a gentleman by the name of Brendan Looney. I served with Mr. Looney in Korea. He was an intelligence officer back then. Both of us made sure that we wanted to do more. I went forward, but Brendan Looney wanted to do more than just that: he wanted to become a SEAL, and he did. He served in Iraq and he served in Afghanistan. “It was in 2010 when the Blackhawk he was riding in went down and crashed, killing everybody onboard … “The men and women who served in the global war on terrorism did not shrink from that responsibility. They did not run away. They ran forward.”
