Memorial Service for BG Thomas L. Tinsley held tomorrow, public invited

Video from the KTUU news story originally announcing his passing:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Elmendorf's commander will be honored later this week in a memorial service on base.

Brig. Gen. Thomas Tinsley was found dead in his home Sunday night. Tinsley died of what appears to be a self inflicted gunshot wound to the chest, according to Air Force officials. They say no note was found.

Representatives of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology will make a final ruling on the cause of death.

A memorial service for the brigadier general will be held 2 p.m. Thursday at hangar one. The service will be open to the public.

I understand how many people are saddened and concerned about BG Tinsley's passing because of the explosion of blog traffic I've had from around the world over this story--80% of the traffic over the last two days. It also indicates to me that many folks out there who respect and admire BG Tinsley are wondering the same thing I am...why?

As someone who worked on Elmendorf in a civilian capacity for almost 13 years (the Feds for over 15) I plan to continue to research this story and follow it matter how long it takes to resolve.

Hmmm....what's this ? The Senate Committee on Armed Services was scheduled to hold a hearing on Monday July 28th to

"To receive a briefing related to Air Force nominations."


Tinsley was the E.O. to Buzz Mosley, who was recently sacked by Robert Gates over a series of scandals.

Put this in your pipe and smoke it -


Do I have to dig this stuff up for you ?

Actually, no...you don't. I already have a number of those links saved in a Favorites file called "Tinsley."

I just figured it might be more...shall we say, "responsible" to wait a little bit...like after the funeral?
