Remembering SPC Michael Cote

Below is a picture of the medical clinic in Balad, Iraq where SPEC. MICHAEL COTE was taken after his helicopter crashed September 19, 2009 in a sand storm. There were 13 passengers on board and he was the only one who died as a result of the crash.  Michael is the grandson of Central resident Janice Walter.  He graduated from Denham springs High School in the spring of 2007 and entered the Army in July.  He had a full military funeral 9/29/2009.  He was an amazing young man and to have a medical clinic renamed in his honor is outstanding.  Please take a moment to consider this incredible young man and so many others like him who gave their lives for us in Iraq.

    Mrs. Walter,
    My deepest condolences and gratitude for your grandson. It sounds like he was a great example. Your heart must be breaking and bursting with pride at the same time. Your family is in my prayers.
