Army Spc Boule was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Aviation Regiment, Hunter Army Airfield, Ga. Killed when his UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crashed in central Iraq. A care package addressed to Mathew Boule was sitting in his parents' home after his death. Sue Boule said she will still mail it. "Mathew always said to me, 'Ma, send goodies. There are a lot of guys here who don't get mail. Whatever you send won't go to waste,'" she said. "I went to visit him in Georgia last July and he showed me his bird - that's what he called his Black Hawk. He was so proud of it," his mother said. "He was so proud he made crew chief. Some day he wanted to fly them." Boule, the youngest of four children, adored his nine nieces and nephews. He was thinking of them when he last talked to his parents in February. "I asked him if he was scared," his mother said. "He said 'Yeah, I'm scared and I don't know what the future will bring, but I have to do this for them, for my family.'"
