Default Update on James Willis, Lighting strike victim

All, SSgt James Willis passed away from his injuries sustained by lighting this past Sat. He was a member of the United States Airforce, a member of the 4th AMU / 1 SOAMXS / 1 SOW, Hurlburt Field Florida. He was a AC-130U Crew Chief who had deployed numerous time in support of Iraqi Freedom and other hot spots around the world. He was one of our top guys who will be missed greatly. There will be a memorial on base soon, I will update this tread with the info. Please pray for his family and the members of the 4th AMU.
