Airman's son raises awareness for children of the fallen

The son of airman killed in Afghanistan is in Valdosta to raise awareness for the children of the fallen.

Michael H. Maltz was killed in a Pave hawk helicopter crash in 2003 while on a mission to rescue afghan children. Moody Air Force Base unveiled the Michael H. Maltz First Term Airmen and Professional Enhancement Center in his honor in 2008. His son Kyle Maltz received a scholarship in the past from the "That Others May Live Foundation." He says dealing with the loss of this father is tough.

"I would say it was really tough when I was young and it was really tough for a long time," said Maltz. "It continues to be tough. You wonder things when I graduated college my dad would've loved to see that."

There's a golf tournament tomorrow at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club to raise money for the foundation.
