Fellow Air Commandos, the 24th SOW is searching for a Special Warfare Airman who fell out of an airplane during a parachute training event. AFSOC, 1st SOW, 7thSFG, Rangers, 920th Rescue Group, and the Coast Guard have been searching 24/7 since the incident happened on 5 Nov. The family has been notified and Special Warfare leaders are surrounding them with the best support available. All Spec War Associations and Foundations are in communication with the Wing and standing by to support the family and unit.
The Air Commando Association & Foundation paid for meals for all those searching on 7 Nov, and right now the only other request for the family is to pay for a rental car for our missing teammate’s parents. The Combat Control Association is in direct contact with the Liaison Officer and will take care of this request. No other releasable information is available at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Airman’s family, teammates and friends.
