Ben Colgan - legacy of an American commando
Ben Colgan served as an American Commando with the world's most elite special operations unit, Delta Force. He distinguished himself as a leader during numerous deployments and was recognized through being commissioned after faithfully serving as a Sergeant. He married the love of his life and was one of the first Americans to deploy from Germany to Iraq in 2003. Ben had a strong bias for action and loved the soldiers he served beside. In November 2003 while conducting combat operations in Baghdad, Iraq, Ben was Killed In Action only seven weeks before the birth of his third daughter. His wife, Jill, describes Ben's life, his love and his legacy. Honor this warrior and remember his sacrifice to America.
