At approximately 6:30 pm a National Guard Blackhawk helicopter crashed near Rochester, NY. My son was on that chopper, like the rest of the crew he was killed. He served one tour in Iraq and a second tour in Afghanistan flying medevac choppers. He's been a guardsman for nearly 20 years. He has been a civilian pilot for about 5 years for the NYS Police. He has 2 other brothers who are also pilots, one who also flew Blackhawks in the Army and the one a civilian fixed wing pilot. Their Grandfather, my father in law, was a corporate pilot for Eastman Kodak in Rochester, NY. Since this forum is so family oriented I thought you folks would like to know this. My son's name is Christian Koch. Thank you, his Father, Dave.
