Foundation honors fallen Olathe veteran

On August 6, 2011, a Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan, killing everyone on board, including 30 Americans and 1 military working dog.  It remains the single day largest loss of American life in the Afghan conflict.  Spencer Duncan, age 21, was the door gunner on that flight.  He was a native of Olathe. Since the time of his death, Spencer's friends and family have dedicated the first Saturday in August as an annual fund-raising event for the Spencer C Duncan Make It Count Foundation, which exists to honor and assist our nation's veterans.
