Members of the 510th Tactical Fighter Squadron and their families dedicated this monument to the memory of Capt. Donald Roberts who died in April when his A-10 crashed in Cambridgeshire. Capt Roberts, widow, Lisa, attended the ceremony. It is also dedicated to the memory of all 510th pilots who have died.
I am Master Sergeant Gary T. Ragsdell, a USAF medic stationed here at RAF Upwood in England. I am writing you to let you know that I have recently taken on a memorial site project cleanup for one of our Pilots [Remember: Capt Donald Roberts] who belonged to the 510FS. I think you will appreciate what we are trying to do for a member of your Squadron. I am also forwarding a few before and now pictures from Aug 2003 - to 10 Oct 2003.
