Aerotech News Digital Edition - August 7, 2020

Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out the August 7 issue of Aerotech News and Review. Members of the Edwards Air Force Base community mourned the passing of one of their own last week. Senior Airman Cody Chrisman passed away in mid-July, following a motor vehicle accident. He was eulogized at a memorial service at Halley-Olsen Chapel in Lancaster, and posthumously awarded an Air Force Commendation Medal. Community members and local veteran support organizations were in attendance, as members of the American Legion Riders joined the Edwards AFB Honor Guard in providing a dignified transfer and ceremonial escort for the Airman’s final journey home to Colorado.  Click on the link below to view the full story, photos and much more news in your free, online copy of Aerotech News and Review, viewable on your desktop or mobile device.
