Chief Warrant Officer Four Christian H. McCoy, KIA

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

Quote:
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.
