On 28 June, 2005, 19 service members lost their lives while conducting Operation Red Wings.

The result of the operation was that the insurgent presence left that area of the Korangal Valley with U.S. forces sustaining heavy casualties. Those anti-coalition forces later returned to the area three weeks later.
