"Held by his dad, a son grieves for his mother, Staff Sgt. Afton Ponce, one of four U.S. airmen killed in a Pave Hawk crash earlier this month in eastern England. "
I want you all to take a moment and reflect. The danger in peace and wartime is always there, more/less doesn’t really matter.
Every person on every branch that dons the uniform, makes a conscious choice of accepting that risk in service of others.
RIP to the Jolly 22 crew.
Tech. Sgt. Dale E. Mathews
Staff Sgt. Afton M. Ponce
Capt. Sean M. Ruane
