Lakenheath Gate Dedicated to Fallen Airman

The 48th Security Forces Squadron at RAF Lakenheath, Britain, on June 1 dedicated one of the base’s gates to SrA. Jason D. Nathan, a unit member killed one year ago in Iraq. “Airman Nathan represents the absolute best of what the Air Force brings to the fight every day,” Capt. Gregory Bodenstein, who served with Nathan in Iraq, said during the dedication ceremony. Nathan was killed by an improvised explosive device June 23, 2007, while on a combat patrol in Tikrit. His grandfather, Rev. Lorenzo Holt, his sister, Janelle, and his mother, Phyllis Nathan, attended the ceremony. (Lakenheath report by TSgt. J. LaVoie)
