More About Curt Feistner
Posted By MAJ Paul Cal
|Curt was a true American hero. He had been serving with
160th SOAR for about seven years. He had successfully commanded HHC/2-160th and
his regimental commander specially selected Curt to command the new
E Co./160th that stood up last year and forward-deployed to Korea. Curt did
a great job deploying this new unit to Korea and flying the special ops
missions in the Pacific theater. Curt's company was flying the missions
in the Philippines.
Curt lived life to the fullest. He was a great friend and role
model to all who knew him. He was the utmost professional--a true expert
totally dedicated to his country, his unit, his soldiers, and the mission.
He trained hard and ran ironman competitions, triathlons, and marathons.
He was as tough as any soldier you could find. Curt was a credit to his
country and an inspiration to all around him.
The Feistner family is strong and is bearing the burden of Curt's
loss with dignity. The Feistner family members take comfort in knowing
that Curt died doing what he believed in-- what he had chosen to do out of love
and commitment to a higher cause. Please remember Curt and the Feistners
in your thoughts and prayers.
The Feistner family is considering a charity to designate for donations in memory
of Curt. I will send out an update when the family decides.
