Obama told the story of Travis Manion and Brendan Looney, roommates at the Naval Academy who were later both sent into battle. Lt. Travis Manion, a Marine, was killed on patrol in Iraq in April 2007. Three years later, Navy Seal Lt. Brendan Looney was killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. CBS’s David Martin reported last year on how their families vowed the friends in life would be honored in death.
