Sgt Joe L. Wrightsman, 23, of Jonesboro, La., died July 18 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

On July 18, Sgt Wrightsman was part of a patrol crossing the Helmand river when an ANP (Afghan National Police) was swept away in the river behind him.  Without hesitation, Sgt Wrightsman, in full personal protective gear, dove into the water in an effort to rescue the ANP.  He was last seen about 50 ft downstream when he surfaced briefly.  Four other Marines had dropped their gear and went in after him but were unable to find anything.

From what I understand the entire Marine Expeditionary Force threw its efforts into recovering Sgt Wrightsman.  Every type of asset, aircraft, equipment, and personnel were employed. Taliban forces were beginning to move in from the north in an effort to capture the Sgt Wrightsman's body before the Marines.  They were thwarted after two days when both bodies were recovered by the Americans.    [1stSgt Michael Burke]
