  1. Mike was a great guy and a great friend! He will be missed by all of us at Evergreen.

  2. Mike was like a brother to me. I have known Mike since college at ASU. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  3. I flew with Mike in Qatar. He was the best pilot I ever flew with bar none

  4. My Nephew, Scott Ozier was killed on the same crash. My heart goes out to the families that have lost someone so special. It takes a special man to answer the call these three men did. My upmost respect and honor go out to you sir, and your family... GOD Bless you!
