I was so shocked to hear on the news that 2 FBI Agents had died in a terrible helicopter accident. To see the face of one of those men just makes it more real and shocking. My heart goes out to his family, friends, and colleagues. He was such a young person learning the skills required to help protect their nation. I am so sorry for your loss. Wishing his family all the support they need to help them through this sad time.
