Senior Airman Shane Dunaway delivers the sad news about Capt. Nathan J. Nylander, who was killed in Afghanistan last week:

Capt. Nathan J. Nylander, an Airman assigned to the 25th Operational Weather Squadron here at D-M was pronounced dead on April 27 after a shooting at Kabul International Airport, Afghanistan.

The death of this Airman marks the third loss Davis-Monthan has suffered to either operations in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Captain Nylander is survived by his wife Miriam Nylander and three children.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of the Airmen who paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedoms,” said Col. John Cherrey, 355th Fighter Wing commander. “Today’s tragic event hit close to home as one of our own was among the casualties. We will continue to support the Airman’s family as they deal with this loss.”

Our condolences to Captain Nylander's family and friends for his sacrifice on our behalf.
