"24 hours for the fallen"

U.S. Air Force Capt. Dan Curtin serves as the Operations Officer in Charge at the 169th Air Support Operations Squadron at the 182nd Airlift Wing, Peoria, Ill. On March 29, 2013, Capt. Curtin ran in the worldwide Tactical Air Control Party Association 24 Hour Run Challenge to raise funds in support of the TACP community and their families, and to honor TACPs who have fallen in combat, such as Staff Sgt. Jacob Frazier who was killed in action in Geresk, Afghanistan, exactly ten years before. Staff Sgt. Frazier's convoy was ambushed on March 29, 2003, while en route to provide support to Capt. Curtin's team during a multi-day firefight. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Lealan Buehrer//Released)
