    The thoughts and prayers of the entire VMI family are with the family of USAF Cpt (P) Charles Ransom VMI-01. He and all of the other service members out there today are living examples of the passage from Isaiah 6:8- "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
    Rest in peace.

    I had heard about this a couple of days ago, but I didn't want to post anything until I saw it on the VMI website. I'm glad they have got it up there now for the VMI community to read.

    Charles was two years behind me at VMI. I can't say that I knew him well, but I do remember him. I have a strong recollection of helping his class prepare for AFROTC Field Training, and I remember him working in the library and being on the GC. He was very well-respected by his classmates.

    A terrible loss for the Air Force and VMI. My thoughts are with his family.
