Yes, another hero has taken his place in rest to await the return of our Father. Just a few comments from his friends and family from Facebook. I feel I could not have said it better. "Rest in peace CW4 Dave Carter."

"Since the media can’t shake it’s fixation on the Special Op’s team we lost on the Chinook that was shot down. I am reposting this from medicbear another forum. There were 5 Army National Guard crewmembers who flew that bird into a hot LZ in order to assist the Rangers. MedicBear says it well:The real flight crew: CW4 David Carter, SGT Patrick Hamburger 2-135 Aviation Regiment CO and NE Guard. CW2 Bryan Nichols, SPC Alexander Bennett, and SPC Spencer Duncan 7-158 Aviation. RIP"

"Dave Carter Memorial Fund: The family requests that in lieu of flowers or other expressions of sympathy that contributions be made to a college fund established for Kyle and Kaitlyn in memory of their father CW4 Dave Carter. Contributions can be made at any 1ST Bank location in the name of 'Dave Carter Memorial Fund'."

"My heart is filled with sadness with the loss of CW4 David Carter CH47 pilot B Company 2-135 avn. may his family find peace with the. support of the army guard the battalion family and friends during this trying period of their lives. god bless the familys of the soldiers, airmen, and sailors who gave their all to this country. we all should find strength from them. and their sacrifice."

"My thoughts and prayers go out to families and friends of B Co 2-135th GSAB and all of the Soldiers who were killed in the helicopter crash. God bless our fellow military members who gave their lives for our freedom!! Freedom isn't free and we must never forget that."

"One of my dear friends...Dave helped me grow as a father, husband and Army Chaplain. I'll never forget his smile, encouragement and example of what a man should be...Our thoughts, prayers and love are with the family."
