Charles Edward Nichols was killed when his plane went down in a rice paddy after a resupply mission. He was married to a cousin of VVA Member Wayne McCormick.

Even our K9 Partners mourn over a loss of a companion. As a USAF K9 Handler, this truly tugs at my heart for I have mourned for a few I've lost over the years. The bond is great when you're with one over time. Especially one you went to battle with (and law enforcement). My dogs are like my kids (have none). Seeing this dog grieve really hurts. Mike, Chief, Lucky, Honky and Smack, I'll always remember you guys
