McEroe from the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), Staff Sergeant James F. Moriarty from the 5th SFG(A), and Sergeant First Class Ryan A. Gloyer from the 10th SFG(A) following their interments at Arlington National Cemetery.

SSG Moriarty of Kerrville, TX and SSG McEnroe of Tucson, AZ were killed on the 4th of November in Jordan with SSG Matthew C. Lewellen of Lawrence, KS.  SFC Gloyer of Greenville, PA was killed on the 3rd of November in Kunduz, Afghanistan with Captain Andrew D.
