TV star Dennis Franz was drafted into the U.S. Army after college, and served in the airborne division during the Vietnam War. After he returned home, Franz followed his parents' footsteps and became a postman for a short time. He then decided to pursue a career as an actor, starting out with Chicago's Organic Theater Company. Around this time, Franz met and befriended fellow actor Joe Mantegna.

In 1978, Franz made his first appearances on the big screen: He had small parts in both Brian De Palma's The Fury and Robert Altman's A Wedding. His work in The Fury garnered the attention of television producer Steven Bochco.

Dennis Franz first came to prominence with Bochco's gritty police drama Hill Street Blues; in the 1980s, he played two different roles on the popular series—Detective Sal Benedetto and Lieutenant Norman Buntz. The latter character was later featured in a short-lived spinoff, Beverly Hills Buntz (1987).

In 1993, Franz took on his most acclaimed role of his career, starring as Detective Andy Sipowicz on the controversial drama NYPD Blue. Thank you for your service from Soldiers' Stories.

Sgt. Charles C. Strong, 28, was a member of the Marine Forces Special Operations Command.

On Wednesday, his body was brought home from Afghanistan, escorted by his older brother Jason, a staff sergeant in the same Marines Special Operations Command. The two brothers were deployed to Afghanistan at the same time.

Strong's unit, the 2nd Marines Special Operations Battalion based at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, was on a mission training Afghan National Army soldiers in Herat province in western Afghanistan.

Morris confirmed that Strong was killed in what officials are calling a "green-on-blue" attack in which an Afghan soldier turned his weapon on international trainers.

The Afghan TOLO News agency, citing local officials, reported that an Afghan soldier shot and killed one trainer and injured another trainer and an interpreter. The shooter was killed.

A fundraising campaign on the website GoFundMe seeks to raise money for his wife Taylor who is expecting a girl.

Strong's career with the Marines began in 2003. After deploying to Iraq as a motor transport operator in 2005, he received specialized training and was the sole vehicle recovery operator for his Marine battalion on his second deployment to Iraq in 2006.

He was promoted to sergeant in 2007 and served as a team leader and navigator for all logistical mounted patrols in 2011.

Over his career, Strong earned both a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal and a Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal.

Strong joined the Marines' Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, last year, where he became a critical skills operator. This was his second deployment to Afghanistan. R.I.P. Sgt. Strong.
