DoD Identified the Airmen from C-130 crash PDF Print E-mail
BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - This weekend, the Department of Defense identified the six Airmen assigned to the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing who died on Oct. 2 when a C-130J Super Hercules aircraft crashed shortly after takeoff from Jalalabad Airfield, Afghanistan, said a Dyess Air Force Base press release.
 
According to the press release, the Airman killed in the crash included Capt. Jordan Pierson, Capt. Jonathan Golden, Staff Sgt. Ryan Hammond, Senior Airman Quinn Johnson-Harris, all deployed from 317th Airlift Group at Dyess AFB, along with Senior Airman Nathan Sartain and Airman 1st Class Kcey Ruiz who deployed from the 66th Security Forces Squadron at Hanson Air Force Base, Massachusetts. The wing held a morning fallen comrade ceremony on Oct. 3 to honor the Airmen who “made the ultimate sacrifice” doing their duty on the “combat frontier.” Fellow wingmen paid their respect and mourned their loss, and after a brief prayer from the wing chaplain, the squadron commanders of the fallen were provided the opportunity to address the service members who gathered at the ceremony, stated the press release.
