ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Plans for a small memorial service on Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson are underway for Monday, open only to close friends and family of 24-year-old Clinton Reeves.
“The mood of the base right now is somber,” said Major Joseph Coslett. “This is a tragic event but we’re pulling together and now we’re looking for ways to truly honor the sacrifices of Airman Reeves.
But along Golden Eagle Drive in Eagle River, is a place where anyone can pay their respects, at the spot where the senior airman’s body was found. But one Anchorage woman said she wants to do something more.
“I wish I can help more, but that’s only what I can afford, so that’s why I am offering those guest passes to [his parents],” said Yolanda DelaCruz.
