The Department of defense has announced the deaths of two airmen who were supporting Operation Freedom Sentinel The men died October 11 in the crash of a British Puma Mk2 helicopter in Kabul, Afghanistan. The cause of the accident is currently under investigation.
My thoughts go to the families and friends of Maj. Phyllis J. Pelky, 45, of Rio Rancho, New Mexico. She was assigned to the U.S. Air force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Also killed was Master Sgt. Gregory T. Kuhse, 38, of Kalamazoo, Michigan. He was assigned to the 3d Manpower Requirements Squadron at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois.
My thoughts, and I’m sure those of millions of Americans, are sent to the families and friends of these two Air Force members.
