Foster, Hultgren honor U.S. Air Force Captain killed in Afghanistan
An United States Air Force Captain killed in Afghanistan is being honored by Congressman Bill Foster (IL-11) and Congressman Randy Hultgren (IL-14) Wednesday.
Foster and Hultgren issued a joint statement to honor Captain Brandon Cyr's life, service, and sacrifice.
Captain Cyr was from Oswego and was a member of the 906th Air Refueling Squadron. He grew up in a military family and knew at a young age he wanted to serve his country. He was killed when the aircraft he was in crashed in the Zabul Province of Afghanistan on April 27, 2013.
Captain Cyr’s patriotism, commitment and service are an example to us all. He made the ultimate sacrifice for his country, and his legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of his friends and family.
