Airport manager returns thanks to soldier’s family


Editor, The Commercial,

To the family of Michael Strachota, thank you very much for the kind words offered to the airport staff and me in the August 7, 2012 edition of the Pine Bluff Commercial. It was our honor to be at your service while receiving Mr. Strachota at the Pine Bluff Municipal Airport.

It was our goal to ensure your privacy and make your visit to our airport as pleasant as possible considering the circumstances.

However, we are the ones that should be thanking you. For your family has paid the ultimate price for the freedom that we enjoy every day. God bless your family during this very difficult time.

Doug Hale, manager

Pine Bluff Municipal Airport
