FAIRBANKS - They came from different backgrounds but shared one passion: flying.
That's how hundreds from the Fort Wainwright Community remembered two fallen airmen killed Nov. 15 in Mosul, Iraq.
Chief Warrant Officers Donald V. Clark and Christian P. Humphreys were killed instantly when their OH 58 Kiowa helicopter crashed.
Clark, 37 and a Tennessee resident, was remembered for his rough and tumble demeanor. He had served as a flight instructor in Korea and Alabama.
Humphreys, 28 and from New Mexico, served as a crew chief in the Navy before joining the Army. He was remembered for his love for board games, particularly backgammon.
