Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Moehling was assigned to Company A, 5th Battalion, 158th Aviation Regiment, 12th Aviation Brigade based in Giebelstadt, Germany. Moehling died in a Black Hawk helicopter crash in the Kuwaiti desert near Camp New Jersey during a night training mission. The Kuwaiti military said sandstorms were reported in the area at the time the chopper went down. Timothy graduated from Mosley High School in Panama City and later graduated from Florida State University's Panama City campus in 1992 with a bachelor's degree in social science. He joined the Army after graduation and became an instructor pilot. Tim and his wife Lisa had lived in Germany for the past two years with their three children. He was totally devoted to his family, driving them all over Europe in the family minivan. Quiet, unruffled and perpetually laid-back, Tim preferred sitting in a sauna to physical training. After arriving in Kuwait in early February, he had earned the nicknames "Puff Daddy" and "Mr. Howell" because he would sit outside his tent in a camp chair, his feet up, wearing a hat and smoking his aromatic pipe. Just before he left for Kuwait, his little 5-year-old son reached up and touched him on the cheek and said, "Daddy, you're the best".
