February 21, 1990


Killed while on  a peacekeeping mission along the coast of Panama in a helicopter crash.





From Randy Brandt 03/20/10:

He was my friend and is one of many that died on Feb. 21, 1989 while on a mission in Panama from two helicopters that went down in the jungle. I was in 2nd platoon. Our entire company went through basic together in 1989, so it was a very tough and sad day for us all. We were like brothers. Also in the crashes were Sgt Sidney Tyrone Dew, Sgt Antonio B. Solis WO Vincent C. Gibson, Cpt. Richard Tyndall from Ohio. and more that I do not have a list of. I think there were 18 all together.
