One valiant soldier's last battle has ended. CW4 Rob Turns of the 160th Special Ops Aviation "Nightstalkers" pulled several tours in the Middle East, but no enemy bullet claimed him. It was cancer this morning at home in Savannah.
We've shared stories of Rob's courage, the stalwart support from his men that was clearly evident last December when the Nightstalkers marched into his front yard, as they did again last week on his 46th birthday.
The Nightstalkers will delay their next deployment to hold a military memorial service Thursday at Post Chapel Hunter.
The civilian service will be held Friday at 3pm at Southside Assembly of God on Tibet Avenue.
Rob's family asks that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to a college scholarship fund at Bank of America in Lynnette Turns' name for Bobby and Amy Turns.
