LTC Troy Faber (I2) Passes

With sadness we report the death of another classmate, LTC Troy Anthony Faber (I2) '89.  We have very few details to pass along, other than he died suddenly in the DC area either on 28 June (according to the funeral home's web site) or 1 July (according to the Washington Post obituary). 

Troy's ashes will be interned at Arlington National Cemetery with full honors later this year.  In lieu of flowers donations be made to the Wounded Warriors.

Just as we do for any fallen classmate, WP-ORG has established a eulogy page for Troy at

Please leave some thoughts and memories for his family on that site.  It will bring some measure of comfort in their time of grief.
