US Contractor Todd Walker killed in helicopter crash

48-year-old US Contractor Todd Walker was one of three aircrew members killed on 16th January 2012 in a helicopter crash in Helmand province. Mr. Walker was employed by AAR Airlift, a US company contracted to work in Afghanistan for the US Department of Defense. He had flown helicopters for 27 years all across the world.

His parents talked about their son to local news. "He loved the Lord and that was first in his life. After that, his wife and his three kids. He adored his family," his mother Jan said. "He lived on the edge. That's what I always tell everybody. He lived on the edge all his life."

His father Darrell said "He liked people. He liked to travel. He wasn't afraid to do anything."

Todd Walker leaves behind a loving wife, three kids, a sister, and his parents.

  1. My Nephew, Scott Ozier was killed along with the other two gentleman in this crash that has touched so many lives. My heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with the families at this most troublesome time. It takes a special man to fight for what they believe.. as the country song says... YOU GOTTA STAND FOR SOMETHING OR YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING. Much respect and honor for you sir, and I send special prayers out to the family for their loss, as well. GOD BLESS YOU!
