Hanscom FCU Donates $2,500 Toward Memorials for Fallen Airmen

Hanscom AFB, MA (March 12, 2018) –  Hanscom Federal Credit Union presented a $2,500 check to the 66th Security Forces Squadron Defenders Club at Hanscom AFB, Massachusetts. The donation will be put toward memorials honoring SrA Kcey Ruiz and SrA Nathan Sartain, who were killed in a plane crash in Afghanistan on October 2, 2015.

The check was presented to Chief Master Sgt. Scott P. Pepper, Superintendent of the 66th Security Forces Squadron, along with Staff Sgt. Tyler Kliss and Tech. Sgt. Matthew Marquart, also of the 66th Security Forces Squadron.

“We’re honored to contribute to these memorials for SrA Ruiz and SrA Sartain, who paid the ultimate price in serving our country,” said Hanscom FCU Chairman, Paul Marotta. “Our hearts go out to their families, friends and loved ones, and the Hanscom FCU community offers its most sincere condolences to them.”  

This May, the Defender’s Club will dedicate memorials at the two main installation gates to the two fallen Airmen, who were members of the 66th Security Forces Squadron stationed at Hanscom AFB. The memorials will include a bronze statue, an engraved granite plaque, and a sign renaming each of the two gates.

SrA Ruiz and SrA Sartain were deployed to the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing in Bagram, Afghanistan.  Both Airmen were assigned to the Fly Away Security Team where they provided security for personnel and cargo transport planes in hostile territories as part of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. SrA Ruiz and SrA Sartain took their final flight when the C-130J Super Hercules aircraft they were on crashed shortly after take-off from Jalalabad, Afghanistan.

Hanscom Federal Credit Union, headquartered at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts, serves over 81,000 members across the country and overseas through 20 branches, over 100,000 service centers and surcharge-free ATMs, 24-hour telephone service and a web-based branch. The credit union holds $1.2 billion in assets.
