Nicholas Whitlock

Capt. Nicholas S. Whitlock, age 29, of Newnan, Georgia, died on February 18, 2012, when his U-28 aircraft was involved in an accident near Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Africa. 

Saint Benedict, pray for Nicholas
He was assigned to the 34th Special Operations Squadron, Hurlburt Field, Florida.

Capt. Whitlock was also a U-28A pilot and was on his fifth deployment. He entered the Air Force in 2006, receiving his commission through the Officer Training School. He had been assigned to the 319th SOS and then to the 34th SOS at Hurlburt Field since 2008 and had more than 800 combat flight hours. 

Nicholas is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his parents and his brother, who is also in the military. 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Nicholas Whitlock is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
