GALLATIN, Tenn. (WKRN) — Nearly a month after a Tennessee National Guard training mission led to a deadly helicopter crash, Chief Warrant Officer 3 Danny Randolph was laid to rest in Gallatin while his family works to carry on his memory.
Randolph’s cousin, Mark Hammock has set up a scholarship fund for four of Randolph’s children, one of whom is already in college.
Hammock told News 2 that higher education is very important to his family, and he wanted to help ease the financial burden for Randolph’s children.
“Education has always been extremely important in our family. Our family matriarch went to TSU before it was called TSU… Of our elders, there were three who went to college, and it was important for all of us, in our generation, to attend college,” Hammock explained. “And for a lot of us, it was a little challenging. There weren’t a lot of funds.”
