Hultgren, Foster honor U.S. Air Force captain

Congressman Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, and Congressman Bill Foster, D-Naperville, issued a joint statement honoring the life and sacrifice of Capt. Brandon Cyr of the United States Air Force. Cyr was killed in the Zabul province of Afghanistan when the MC-12 Liberty aircraft he was traveling in crashed on April 27, 2013. He was a former Oswego, Illinois resident and member of the  906th Air Refueling Squadron within the 375th Air Mobility Wing.



"Illinois has lost a gifted leader, exceptional pilot and true hero in Capt. Brandon Cyr. My wife, Christy, and I extend our deepest sympathies to the Cyr family and to all whose lives Brandon touched,” said Hultgren.  “We mourn with them and join the community to honor and celebrate Capt. Cyr's life and distinguished service in the U.S. Air Force."



“Capt. Cyr’s patriotism, commitment and service are an example to us all. He made the ultimate sacrifice for his country, and his legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of his friends and family,” said Foster.



A statement honoring Cyr was submitted to the Congressional Record.
