GREEN FOREST, Ark. -- It was standing room only at First Assembly of God Church on Tuesday. Family and Friends gathered to remember Senior Chief Tommy Ratzlaff, a Navy SEAL. Ratzlaff was killed along with 29 other U.S. servicemen in the helicopter crash in Afghanistan on Aug. 6.
At the Cattleman's Restaurant, people remembered Ratzlaff for his efforts on the football field, his enthusiasm, and his heart.
"It is a loss, but he's touched so many people and he served this country with great honor. We are so proud of him for that," said former football coach Jim Atkinson.
