More detail on this person: CW4 Steve Adee was buried this morning (12/19/2002) at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors. Steve was in Flight School Class 69-37 and served in Vietnam in 70-71. Shortly before his passing, Steve participated with the National Capitol Chapter in reading the names as part of the 20th Anniversary of the Wall.


CW4 Steven L. Adee was buried in Arlington National Cemetery the previous December. Steven was the brother to a close friend's boyfriend. Steven was a DUSTOFF pilot in Vietnam, and also served in the Persian Gulf, during Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Steven was assigned to the Pentagon. He was there on September 11th, 2001. He was often in the offices where Flight 77 impacted the Pentagon. People he knew did not survive that day. Steven commit suicide on November 10, 2002. My friend and I wondered if being there that day brought back memories of things Steven saw in Vietnam, but he did not seek help in dealing with it. Steven's death made me realize not all casualties of war are killed on a battlefield, and not all battle scars can be seen.
