Memorials to be held for airmen killed in motorcycle crash on Okinawa
CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — Kadena Air Base will hold memorial services next week for two airmen killed in an off-base motorcycle collision Monday.
Senior Airman Kristie M. Arroyo, 24, a member of the 909th Air Refueling Squadron who was from Fort Bragg, N.C., will be memorialized Monday at 3 p.m. at the air base’s Chapel 1, according to the 18th Wing public affairs office.
The memorial for Staff Sgt. Ronald G. Dayce, 25, a member of the 18th Component Maintenance Squadron and a native of Fairfield, Calif., is scheduled for Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. at Chapel 1.
The airmen were riding on a motorcycle Monday night when it collided with another motorcycle on Route 58 south of the Kadena gate.
They were taken to nearby U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa but did not survive. The Japanese driver of the other motorcycle suffered back injuries.
