Chief Warrant Officer 3 Donald Clark and
Chief Warrant Officer 2 Christian Humphreys,
6th Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment pilots,
were honored Tuesday at a memorial service
at Fort Wainwright’s Northern Lights Chapel.
The boots with spurs and the flight helmets
complete with night-vision goggles signify
the pilots’ unique profession. Both pilots
were killed when their OH-58 Kiowa
helicopter crashed Nov. 15 near Mosul, Iraq.
