According to a Fox DC article, Air Force Technical Sergeant Ryan Balmer was killed in Iraq four years ago while Jessica Sweet, also an Air Force Technical Sergeant, died from leukemia two years ago after exposure to toxic smoke at burn pits in Afghanistan. Chris and Danielle first met more than two years ago at a program for families whose loved ones died in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Air Force Memorial is a place of great significance to us here at the Air Force Association. It’s also a national place of pride, reverence and remembrance to the many men and women who’ve served this country in the US Air Force and its heritage organization.
