The Tunnel to Towers Foundation has pledged to pay off the mortgage on the Clarksville, Tennessee home of Chief Warrant Officer 3, Stephen Dwyer ’09, after he lost his life on November 10, 2023.
Dwyer tragically died along with four other crew members when their Blackhawk helicopter crashed in the middle of aerial refueling training over the Mediterranean Sea. He left behind his wife, Allie, and three boys.
During his lifetime, Dwyer followed in his family’s military footsteps, receiving a commission in 2009 from the Military Academy. His parents were both graduates of the United States Military Academy at West Point. While in service, he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal and the Air Medal with Combat device.
