Today family, friends, and loved ones gathered to remember the life of Staff Sergeant Joshua Schoenhoff.
He and two other airmen, both from Robins Air Force Base, were killed last week in Okinawa, Japan, when a wave crashed on shore, and swept them out to sea.
The memorial service for Schoenhoff was held at Shirley Hills Baptist church in Warner Robins.
Fellow JSTARS were there to show their respects.
Shirley Hills' Pastor, Andy Cook, spoke at the brief service, and the ceremony ended with a flag folding and presentation to Schoenhoff's family.
"I saw his face everyday, and now that I don't see his face everyday, it's heartbreaking," says fellow JSTAR, Chad McLaughlin.
