Capt. Corry P. Tyler, 29
CPT Tyler was among 14 U.S. soldiers
killed Wednesday when a Black Hawk helicopter crashed during a
nighttime mission on Aug. 22 in Multaka, Iraq. Army officials
in Iraq believe the crash was caused by mechanical failure.
CPT Tyler graduated at the top of
his class at Camden County High School in Georgia, then went on
to graduate from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1999
After the death of his father last
year CPT Tyler was left as the sole male survivor in his family
and, for that reason, was not required to return to Iraq. However,
he volunteered for his third tour of duty and was scheduled to
return to his home in Washington state in 2 months.
He is is survived by his wife Kathy,
three small children, and his mother.
