Remembering 1Lt Roslyn Schulte

I just saw Gateway Pundit's Memorial Day post which brought news that a Saint Louisan died in Afghanistan this past week. First Lieutenant Roslyn Schulte died from injuries she received from a road-side bomb. CNN reports that she was the first female graduate of the Air Force Academy to die from hostile action in Afghanistan or Iraq. I got the picture from Charlie Foxtrot. The Ladies of Liberty have much more including the Post Dispatch article and a remembrance from a classmate and friend. She was laid to rest at New Mount Sinai Cemetery on Memorial Day.

Update: Roslyn was in Air Force intelligence. As it happens, I was involved in the early R&D for Global Hawk. By "early" I mean back before it was called Tier 2+, back when it was called HAE UAV (High Altitude Endurance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). I'm kinda curious about whether she used Global Hawk imagery or was familiar with the platform. If you know (and can tell me), please leave a comment. Thanks in advance!
