From the Langley-Eustis Joint Base web site:
In loving memory of Senior Airman Prine
Roxanne Prine, mother of the late U.S. Air Force Senior Airman James Prine, accepts the Air Force Achievement Medal from Maj. Ivan Pennington, 1st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron commander, during a memorial service at Langley Air Force Base, Va., July 3, 2014. Senior Airman Prine, a 1st AMXS crew chief, died at the age of 23 in an accidental drowning and is survived by his mother, father, sister and other relatives. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Aubrey White/Released)SN1 and I talked a bit about this last week. This terrible event happened during Buck's first full week in command and profoundly affected him. As the post title indicates... sometimes it's not easy.
RIP, SrA Prine.
