Capt David Van Camp, 29, US Army, and two fellow soldiers, made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country as the jeep in which they were riding was struck by a missile in the Sandbox on 29 July. He is survived by his wife, Chelsea, his parents and three brothers.

He will be returning to Dover AFB tomorrow, 02 July, and coming in to Wheeling-Ohio County Airport on an, as of yet, unknown date.

Although no date has been set, services will most likely be held in Elm Grove, WV with interment in Arlington National Cemetery.

Contact has been made with the CAO and a family member who will present our offer to stand in silent Honor and Respect as well as escort him upon his return to West Virginia.

RC assignment will be made when this becomes a Confirmed Mission.
