Last Known Activity
Josh was killed in an aviation mishap on 1/16/08. He was one of my FRS students. We got to know him very well as he was on a medical hold for a long time. I last saw him in October 07. He said he was finally done and was qualified to fly the MH-53E. He was heading to TX. A good dude, and will be remembered as such.

I am missing some details, so if any of you know what his ribbons, or OCS class were, please drop me a line.
