    Sgt. Harr, I am contacting you concerning the story you posted about the B/7/158th avn crew lost in Afghanistan. A member of that crew personally gave a unit patch for “wall of honor” in our brew pub and I am wanting to place a memorial shadow box on the wall but I can’t remember his name. I found out from another member of the battalion but I have no way of contacting them and I am looking for any help I can get.
