MSgt Posch laid to rest

Air Force Reserve Master Sgt. William Posch, 36, Indialantic, Florida, was an Air Force Reserve pararescuemen assigned to the 308th Rescue Squadron providing combat rescue support for Inherent Resolve when he and seven Airmen were killed in an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter crash in Anbar Province, Iraq, March 15, 2018. During a memorial service June 21, 2018, each of his teammate Guardian Angel Airmen in attendance followed a time-honored pararescue tradition of pounding the flash from their beret onto the lid of the casket. This was followed by the completion of a round of memorial pushups to honor their fallen teammate. (Photo courtesy D.J. Struntz)
