    Don't know if this is the right way of conveying our condolence to the grieving family of Capt. Gruenther but not knowing them personally, guess it would have to suffice. 10 years after graduating from USAFA, this strikes a somber chord for any aspiring cadet. With the risks and dangers that are inherent, those who are left to carry on and continue to pursue the dream of flight and to serve-be safe and Godspeed.
    May he rest in peace and his family find comfort in their time of grief.

    I recall back in 90 when a 111 in Bullet's squadron went down in the wash, the hardest thing was until they recover their body there is always that hope.

    My heart goes out to his family, but most importantly to their baby that will be born in a few weeks for never having the opportunity to touch his face or hear his voice from a man that gave the ultimate sacrifice to this great nation. His life.

    God Speed, God Bless, and may find peace soon enough to accept the price that they had to pay.
