Chris Frost Memorial Fund
  A Chris Frost Memorial Fund (that's the working title right now) has been established at AFBlues.com. A commemorative coin is being made now, and it will be a limited run of 100 pieces given to the first 100 people to contribute $50 or more. Everything to make the coin has been donated by Coinforce.com. All donations will go to Chris's parents to hold for his two kids, both under the age of 5. Donations can be made at AFBlues.com, and you can find more details there. It's already up to $1,000. ******* SSgt. Chris Frost was an Air Force Public Affairs Airman who was killed Monday when the Iraqi helicopter he was on crashed in the midst of a sandstorm. He was deployed to MNF-Iraq since September.

"He wasn’t with us long enough. What really is 24 years?" Staff Sgt. Frost’s father said.

Gary Frost said there are more words than he could speak about his son Christopher’s too few years.

"He wasn’t with us long enough. What really is 24 years?" Frost said.

As an aspiring photojournalist, Christopher Scott Frost wouldn't stop until he got that one shot that would bring a story to life, his father said Wednesday.

And as a member of the U.S. Air Force serving in Iraq, he got to employ his relentless pursuit of stories as an editor of a military publication, Gary Frost said.

"He was ecstatic when one of his stories got picked up by a Spokane, Washington, newspaper," Gary Frost said in a telephone interview Wednesday night, after learning that his son had been killed in Iraq. "He is esteemed by the people who worked around him for his willingness to tackle any assignment or any mission."

Christopher Frost, a graduate of Mukwonago High School from the Town of Vernon, worked in public affairs as editor of The Advisor, a semimonthly publication of the Multi-National Security Transition Command-Iraq, his father said.

He enlisted in the Air Force right out of high school and was deployed to Iraq in fall, Gary Frost said.

"He loved the challenge and the relentlessness of his job," he said. "He had high hopes of being a top journalist someday."

He never forgot about those around him, his father said.

"When he would ask to have stuff sent from home, whether it was batteries, candies or snacks, it would not be for him," he said. "It would be for the kids or the troops out in the field for whom he had the utmost respect."

Christopher Frost's grandmother, Mary Jean Frost of Waukesha, said she took care of him from the age of 4 months until he started first grade so that both his parents could work.

"He and I used to go away for a couple days up north by ourselves," she continued. "We had a lot of good times together. It's hard for me to know he's gone. I can't even imagine it. He was a wonderful person."
