America’s New Greatest Generation
U.S. Army Sgt. Elijah Rao, 2nd Battalion, 77th Field Artillery Regiment, meets with Afghan children at a school in Laghman Province, Afghanistan in 2009. Rao was killed-in-action by an improvised explosive device Dec. 5, 2009. He was part of the generation of Americans that Col. Michael Forsyth, former 2-77 Field Artillery commander, believes is America’s New Greatest Generation; a generation that has continuously volunteered for military service post 9/11 during a time of war.
