|Below is the official press release on our Fallen Warrior (first from MNSTC-I since I got here 6 months ago). Air Force Staff Sgt Christopher Frost died doing exactly what he was trained to do, reporting on the establishment and Training of a Capable Iraqi Air Force. He personally volunteered for the mission, understood the dangers associated with all missions here in the combat zone, and fearlessly did his job. Each of us owe him and his family a debt of gratitude for the professionalism and pride he brought to the PAO Section, MNSTC-I, the United States Air Force and our Country. SSGT Frost is no longer with us in body but will never be forgotten for his sacrifice by those who served with him.
We continue to pray today for his wife, his two little girls, his parents, and all his family.
