F15C Pilot Lost
Our heartfelt thoughts and condolences to the 104th. Fighter Wing and the family of this American hero, Lt. Col. Morris "Moose" Fontenot Jr., of Longmeadow. These men and women keep us safe, and preserve our freedom. No words can express the sorrow and pride that we feel for those that put their life on the line for this country. The professionalism and dedication to such a critical task is performed daily at Barnes Air National Guard, and many others like it across the country. I hope we can all take a moment to reflect on this brave pilot's sacrifice, and send comforting thanks and support to his family, and the entire 104th.
