In Memoriam - Support Personnel and people who rendered services to the SA Special Forces



Then out spoke brave Horatius,
the Captain of the Gate:

'To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
and the temples of his gods,

'Hew down the bridge, Sir Consul,
with all the speed ye may;
I, with two more to help me,
will hold the foe in play.
In yon strait path a thousand
may well be held by three.
Now who will stand on either hand
and keep the bridge with me?'

From: Horatius
By: Lord Macauley



KIA - a casualty classification generally used to describe the deaths of own forces by other hostile forces or by friendly fire during combat. The KIA does not come from accidents, such as accidental vehicle crashes, terrorism, or other "non-hostile" means. KIA occur from homicides while in combat and other injuries before reaching a medical treatment facility.

DOW (Died Of [Battle] Wounds): Is different than KIA because the casualty survived to reach a medical treatment facility.
