Two FBI agents killed during a training exercise last weekend were remembered during a private memorial ceremony at the U.S. Marine Corps Memorial Chapel at Quantico, the Associated Press reports.

FBI Director Robert Mueller praised the agents, Christopher W. Lorek and Stephen P. Shaw, for their “true and unerring valor.”

“We mourn the loss of two brave and courageous men,” Mueller said. “Like all who serve on the Hostage Rescue Team, they accept the highest risk each and every day, when training and on operational missions, to keep our nation safe. Our hearts are with their wives, children, and other loved ones who feel their loss most deeply.”

Members of the bureau’s elite hostage team, the agents fell to their deaths Friday during an exercise with a rope and a helicopter.
