Senior Airman Nicholas Slaughter and Mr. David Walker Jr., assigned to the 301st Fighter Wing Logistics Readiness Squadron, have passed away. Their loss will be felt across the wing and both will be forever remembered for their contributions to the 301st Fighter Wing mission.

Senior Airman Slaughter had a love for life. Slaughter always cared for others and put his fellow Airmen before himself. Slaughter’s passion, drive and ability to light up a room will be missed in the 301st Logistics Readiness Squadron.

Mr. David Walker Jr. dedicated his life to service. After serving over a 20-year career in the Air Force, Mr. Walker continued his passion of service as a Federal employee over the past 28 years and always wanted to give back. His upbeat and friendly attitude will be missed in the 301st Logistics Readiness Squadron.
