Chad, this week has been one of many thoughts of good times we had together in the 331st, particularly the times out on your boat. I am thankful for your service to our country, but most of all thankful for your friendship, guidance and loyalty. Always welcomed and appreciated were your good humor, laughter, seriousness and leadership, especially during the many meetings we shared together. I appreciated your generosity; friendship and patience while helping me adjust to my new position with the Warriors. You always put family first, and this included those you supervised. Kathy and I enjoyed our time with you, Nikki, and your family and felt blessed to be welcomed into your home and hearts… you truly will be missed.
