I want to take this time to offer my condolences to the family and friends of Air Force Captain Chris Stover and three others, who were killed in an helicopter accident in England on Tuesday.
Chris was a year younger than me at Evergreen High School and a member of the track team with myself at EHS.
We didn’t interact much then as he was a distance runner and I was thrower, but we did have some friends in the same circle.
It’s a shame to see accidents like this, especially in a non-combat situation. Reading about Chris in the article above though, I was proud to see that he served our country in Afghanistan and Iraq after graduating from the Air Force Academy.
I knew that he was very smart back in high school and was happy to see him find success after school. As I said before, it’s just a shame that he was taken from us so early.
Please take a moment to say a prayer for his family and others who lost a loved one in this accident.
To serve this country through military service is an honor and a privilege. Chris was a good candidate for such position and he did so in his short time.
Rest in Peace Captain Chris Stover.
