This is news I wish I didn't here and am shocked and sad. On Monday my friend and fellow 501st member Duane Earle a Canadian sailor on board the HMCS Winnipeg fell overboard 500 nautical miles off the coast of San Fransisco in heavy seas and is now missing. He was reported missing later in the day and the ship turned back along it's route but the odds of finding his body would be slim.

I did hear about the sailor falling over board.
So sorry to hear that you knew him personally.  My condolences go out to his friends and family.

Thanks guy's it's going to be hard for his wife and kid's with Christmas next week and they never found him.. The family is going to have a service on Saturday and want as many of us in full gear lining the road. They figured it would be fitting as he was a Stormtrooper in our Garrison.
