      I am a very close friend of the pilot who medivaced Charles to the hospital that day. It was his first mission and would turn out to be his worst. I would like to share some of the letter that I recieved from the pilot on Aug 23, 2009. I will only share what is needed to be said and is a quote directly from the letter.
      quote== (I’ve flown about 100 hours of combat since I got here on May 1st. The first mission I had turned out to be the worst mission I had. I was on scene in about 20 minutes. I flew the soldier 50 miles to the hospital. I pulled all the power the 2 engines had and landed as quickly as I could. We lost another Great American Soldier that day.His name was Charles Parrish. I hope to meet up with him in heaven some day) end quote. Even though He didn’t know him personally Charles will forever be on his mind and in his prayers along with his family.

      I met Dustin while in training in san antonio. I was so sad to hear of his death. To all his family and friends who read this my thoughts and prayers are with you daily. To his mother and father, you should be so proud! You raised an amazing son and soldier. To Caden, your daddy loved you SOO much and spoke of you often. You were his pride and joy! Athough it doesn’t take away the pain, he was and always will be a TRUE AMERICAN HERO!
