Griffin Memorial

Retired Lt. Col. Randal Nelson spoke at the Staff Sgt. Patrick Griffin Memorial Rededication Ceremony May 16 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Griffin, a member of the 728th Air Control Squadron, was the only Eglin casualty of Operation Iraqi Freedom when he was killed by a roadside bomb May 13, 2003. Nelson was the commander of the 728th and was deployed with Griffin at the time of his death. His memorial was moved from the 728th ACS building, which will be deactivated May 17, to its new location close to the 33rd Fighter Wing’s Khobar Towers Memorial.
