Sgt Tyler Shelton was a member of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment in C-1 as a DAP crew chief. His love of flying inspired him and he had aspirations to become a DAP pilot. At 21 years old, a month before his 22nd birthday, he was killed in a training incident off the coast of San Diego on 27 August 2020.
He is survived by his wife Alex, family, and amazing friends. He is remembered most for his infectious laugh that filled every room and his smile that could brighten anyone’s day. He loved to fight, fought to win, and would rather die than quit. Night Stalkers don’t quit, Night Stalkers don’t forget! We all love and miss him immensely and know he’s raising hell up in heaven.
