Hometown Hero Pilot Jonah McClellan died in Afghanistan Jonah McClellan and his wife Nina. Jonah was born in Minnesota but grew up in Washington state. The couple has three small children. By ]ean Doran Matua, Editor A helicopter crash last week claimed nine lives in southern Afghanistan: five Army and four Navy men serving their country. Details are sparse, even a week later, about the men and their mis- sion. Their names were released several days after the crash, and among them was a "native Minne- sotan." That "native" was actually a "Kimball native," although he grew up in Washington state. Jonah David McClellan is the son of Leona (Hendrickson) and Rob McClellan of Battle Ground, Wash. His grandparents are Reu- ben and Heldn Hendrickson of Kimball. Jonah was born here but grew up in Washington. Jonah was 26, married, and had three small children. He was a Black Hawk helicopter pilot, one of two on board the helicop- ter when it crashed. It is not yet known whether he was the pilot or co-pilot. At this point, that proba- bly doesn't matter. What does matter is that the Hendrickson and McClellan fam- ilies have suffered an indescrib- able and unimaginable loss. One that only about 5,700 other Amer- ican families can fathom: fam- ilies of those who have died for their country in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. What we do know McClellan joined the Army in 2003 to learn to fly helicopters. He graduated high school in 2002. He was a Chief Warrant Officer 2 in the 5th Batallion of the 101st Airborne Division, Combat Avia- tion Brigade, based in Fort Camp- bell, Ky. His unit was deployed in March 2010; this was his second one-year tour in Afghanistan. McClellan's honors include the Air Medal, Joint Meritorious Unit Award, Meritorious Unit Com- mendation, National Defense Ser- vice Medal, Afghanistan Cam- paign Medal, Global War on Ter- rorism Service Medal, Korean Defense Service Medal, Army Ser- vice Ribbon, Overseas Service Rib- bon, NATO Medal, Combat Action Badge, and Army Aviator Badge. His funeral is scheduled for Fri- day this week. Flags on state build- ings in Washington state will be flown at half-staffin his honor. A//I" IVgrSCl.
