Regretfully, an old friend from high school passed away yesterday while serving in Afghanistan. He mentored me and others starting in JROTC and countless others at Notre Dame ROTC. He commissioned and went to UPT where he served as a EC-130 Pilot.
He was one of the greatest men I've had the honor of knowing. Always brought out the best of everyone he interacted with.
The world lost a great person, a great Pilot & Aviator, and an even better friend.
