Maj Woodworth and SMSgt Knuth invite you to join the Special Tactics Training Squadron (STTS) as we conduct our memorial push ups tomorrow 27 May 2011 at 0645L. This set of Memorial Push Ups will be in remembrance of Capt. Derek M. Argel, 28, of Lompoc Calif. Capt. Jeremy J. Fresques 26, of Clarkdale Ariz.; and Staff Sgt. Casey J. Crate, 26, of Spanaway Wash. All were assigned to the 23rd Special Tactics Squadron, Hurlburt Field, Fla. These teammates were lost when their plane crashed May 30 2005 about 80 miles north east of Baghdad in the Diyala province.
With the anniversary of these warriors passing coming on Sunday (30 May 11) STTS will be conducting its official formation on Friday so as to have maximum participation, feel free to conduct your personal set of memorial push ups on Sunday as well.
