    From NBC News in Virginia -

    An airman from Greene County was one of the two U.S. military men who were killed Wednesday at an airport in Germany.

    Through a family friend we have confirmed that U.S. airmen Zachary Cuddeback was killed yesterday in Frankfurt Germany.

    Cuddeback, a 2008 graduate of William Monroe High School, was one of two killed in what's being called an act of terrorism. A gunman opened fire on a bus carrying U.S. service members outside the Frankfurt airport.

    A family friend says Cuddeback's parents are working with the military right now and are coping as best as can be. The family has issued the following statement:

    Airman First Class and Hockey Player Extraordinaire Zachary Ryan Cuddeback's life was ended abruptly on March 2, 2011 while serving his nation in the Republic of Germany. Zac was an Army brat that called many places his home, but had a special place in his heart for St. Louis, Missouri. In 2008, Zachary graduated high school from William Monroe High School in Stanardsville, Virginia. After a year at Old Dominion University, where Zac played on the ODU Monarch's Ice Hockey Team, he joined the U.S. Air Force in 2009. Zac was a regular at the Charlottesville Ice Park. His love of the Air Force, Cars, and Hockey were paramount in his life. Zac always had a smile on his face for everyone, but had no closer friend than his brother Tim. Zac will be remembered by his family and friends as an automobile enthusiast and for his love of the game of hockey. His mother, De Loyet, father, Bob Cuddeback, and brother and best friend, Tim Cuddeback, will miss him sorely.

    At this point U.S. and Germany authorities are still trying to determine the motive for the shooting.

    Senior Airman Nicholas J. Alden

    From: Williamston, South Carolina
    Age: 25
    Unit: 48th Security Forces Squadron, 48th Mission Support Group, 48th Fighter Wing


    U.S. Senior Airman Nicholas J. Alden was standing outside of a bus at Frankfurt airport when a young man first asked him for a cigarette, then whether he was bound for Afghanistan.

    When Alden answered yes, the 21-year-old Kosovo Albanian fatally shot him, point blank, in the back of the head, then stormed aboard the bus shouting "Allah Akbar" - Arabic for "God is great." He shot and killed Airman 1st Class Zachary R. Cuddeback, who was at the wheel, then shot and injured two others, German authorities said Friday.
    Though he was from Indiana, Alden, 25, lived in South Carolina, where he met his wife. The couple recently had their second child, according to a report by ABC News' Indianapolis affiliate WRTV.

    "The thing that I'm going to miss the most is being able to talk to him, being able to see him. It hurts even worse because he's got two children and they won't get to fully know him and what a great person he was," Nicholas Alden's brother, Joe, told WRTV.

    Two Navy sailors who were killed in a rollover crash at Camp Pendleton on Monday have been identified as Petty Officer Third Class Daniel M. Shirar and Constructionman Mychael A. Flint.

    Navy officials say the two were passengers in a 7 ton water truck that rolled over during a Navy- Marine training exercise called "Pacific Horizon."

    Flint, 21, was based in Coronado but grew up in Fort Ann, New York.

    "He was just the funniest kid, he was always just happy, I don't care what the situation was, Myke made it good,"said his grandmother Pamela Pecue from her home in Fort Edward, New York.

    Pecue says Flint joined the Navy because he wanted to serve his country and learn how to operated heavy equipment.

    Flint chose the Navy over the other armed services because he thought it was the "safest of all of them."

    Navy officials say Flint and Shirar, 27, who was from Baytown, Texas, were thrown from the water truck as they were delivering drinking water to a campsite.

    "I keep asking myself why him? and how did he get thrown from this vehicle, why he couldn't stay in it," said Pecue.

    The driver of the truck has not been identified and was taken to a nearby hospital for injuries suffered in the crash.

    The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
