I did not know Wayne personally, but I was in the ship's Air Control Tower the night the helo went down. I witnessed the events leading to his death and I took part in the investigation of the crash.
Wayne, you are not forgotten! Until we meet together in heaven

Thank you for your service!

From his uncle,
