SFC Broderick update from Afghanistan - fatalities

I hope to post more details soon, but please pray for my former colleague and platoon sergeant SFC David Broderick and his team in Afghanistan. They had two of their men murdered by a suicide bomber while on patrol. News link below.
PITTSBURGH -- Two Pittsburgh-area Army National Guard members were killed (June 13th) in a suicide bomb attack in Afghanistan, officials said. The attack happened last Sunday.
Sgt. First Class Robert Fike, of Conneautville in Crawford County, and Staff Sgt. Bryan Hoover, of West Elizabeth in Allegheny County, were on a foot patrol in the Bullard Bazaar in Zabul province of southeastern Afghanistan when they were killed in the 10:25 a.m. Friday blast, guard spokesman Cory Angell said Sunday.
