Chief Warrant Officer 2 Steven E. Shephard of Purcell, Okla., was a 1993 graduate of Purcell High School who played baseball and played the saxophone in the school's marching band and had a lifelong dream of becoming a pilot loving everything about flying and jets. He earned a pilot's license before he even graduated from high school. He taught aviation at the Air Force Academy and Kansas State University before joining the Army after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He had a great sense of humor and was voted "most witty" during his senior year. He was a hardworking and dedicated player who always had an interest in aviation. He joined the Army in 2002. And while he always dreamed of flying a fighter jet, he was happy to be flying a helicopter. His wife, Meleah, was expecting the couple's first child in September. He was 30.
