Chief Warrant Officer Four Christian H. McCoy, KIA

CW4 (Ret) Christian H. McCoy,
RIP Brother, Vaya con Dios
Deepest condolences to family and Teammates

A U.S. military contractor killed in Afghanistan on Monday marks the second known incident in the past week of military contractors dying in the region.

Retired Chief Warrant Officer Four Christian H. McCoy was killed Monday in Afghanistan, one year after hanging up the official service uniform he wore for 30-years in the U.S. military—most of it within the ranks of Army Special Forces.

Newsweek confirmed McCoy's death after speaking to multiple Defense Department sources, interviewing his former wife on Wednesday and obtaining a confidential letter from a major U.S. military defense contractor.

RIP, Chief.

Thank you for your service, and your sacrifice.

De Oppresso Liber.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

Rest In Peace, Chris.
. . . This is another type of warfare; new in its intensity, ancient in its origin, warfare by guerrillas, subversives, insurgents, assassins, war by ambush instead of by combat, by infiltration instead of aggression, seeking victory by eroding and exhausting the enemy instead of engaging him.
