La. Guard releases names of soldiers killed in crash

Pineville guardsman remembered for ‘ultimate sacrifice’

Pineville native David Strother saved soldiers’ lives with medical evacuations when he served overseas with a Louisiana National Guard helicopter unit.

He has now given his life for his country, as he was among 11 servicemen killed Tuesday night in a helicopter crash in the Florida Panhandle during a military training exercise.

Strother, a chief warrant officer 4, is being remembered by the Central Louisiana community as someone who made the “ultimate sacrifice” for his country.
