Wasn't one of the heroes..Duncan? - Megan Hollingsworth
I drove through the McDonald's drive-thru one day. We have all done this I am sure. But this time, it was different. As I pulled up to the 1st window to pay for my meal, the lady saw my front license plate that read, "In Memory of Extortion 17." She proceeded to ask what that meant. I explained to her it was the Chinook that was shot down that killed 31 brave heroes on August 6th, 2011. She then said, "Wasn't one of the heroes...Duncan? That we all lined the streets for?" I was in awe that she would remember as it had been at least a year and a half since August 6th. I told her yes, Spencer Duncan was killed that day and asked if she had known you. She shook her head and said, "No, but I will never forget him."
Spencer, you will never be forgotten. Even by the girl that works the drive-thru in McDonald's. You are missed by so many, but your sacrifice is remembered and always will be.
