Over the past few weeks I’ve been talking about the six aircraft crashes I saw during my years in the Air Force. The very first one of them changed my focus from crashed aircraft to their human contents.

There was one other crash, however, which got my attention even more than those I actually saw. In fact, it was one that no one saw, and I saved it for last because of someone who died in that crash, someone I’m sure you will find to be – as I did – a very special human being.
