On January 9th, Staff Sgt. Kenneth Wilburn, a dedicated airman who served his country for 11 years, passed out during training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.
He was treading water in a pool during an intensive exercise when he lost consciousness. Staff Sgt. Wilburn was transported to Willford Hall Medical Center, where he died on January 13th. Though he was on temporary duty in Texas, Sgt. Wilburn was permanently assigned to Moody Air Force Base.
"Staff Sgt. Wilburn came to the 820th Security Forces Group stationed here at Moody Air Force Base in October of 2006," says Colonel Donald Derry.
His family of airmen say Wilburn was a remarkable man. Colonel Derry adds, "He was a fantastic air force NCO, a fantastic human being, and he will be certainly missed by all."
Sgt. Wilburn had an impressive career for his young age of 30. "He was very knowledgeable, and because of his knowledge, we brought him up to the 820th Security Forces Group to work in our operations section to be a trainer," says Derry. "He helped train all of the individuals that were going to deploy."
The exact cause of Sgt. Wilburn's death if still under investigation. He is survived by his wife Rebecca, and their daughter, Megan. Rebecca is with child, and their second daughter, Ella Kate, is due in March.
Though she will never meet her father, it is clear that Sgt. Wilburn's legacy of service will exist for years to come.
