Rest in peace. Thank you for your service and sacrifice from a grateful nation. Speedy recovery to those who were injured.

Here is a most recent news article from Cpt Carpenter's home town:

I was in the area (Restaurant across the street from airfield) the evening when the bird went down. I understand it is being listed as a "hard landing" however the bird was laying on its side and much of the aft section was destroyed. It is a testament to the skill and equipment that anyone walked away.

My condolences to those and the families involved, growing up the son of a helo pilot I am constantly in awe of what these gents are able to do. It is a very sad day for our community. Since locating to Savannah, I have become great friends with quite a few of these guys at 3bn.

RIP Capt. Carpenter

Went to the Memorial service this AM for Cpt. Carpenter. A well thought of man.

Sad to see this on the 15th anniversary of my retirement as a Shadow Company pilot.

This year will also mark the 25th anniversary of the organization and my relationship with it.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.
