Technical Sergeant Herman "Tre" Mackey III died Friday, May 3rd near Chon-Aryk, Kyrgyzstan in the crash of a KC-135. He was based out of Fairchild Air Force Base.

He and two others killed in the crash were assigned to the 93rd Air Refueling Squadron. The cause of the crash is under investigation according to the Department of Defense.

The plane was on a refueling mission for Afghanistan war operations at the time of the crash, a U.S. defense official in Washington said, speaking anonymously because he was not authorized to discuss the details of an ongoing investigation.
