Staff Sgt. Patrick Wisniewski, a member of the 127th Security Forces Squadron at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, was killed in an auto accident on Sunday evening, June 2. Staff Sgt. Wisniewski had just left the base after completing his normal shift as a Security Forces Airman.

"Our thoughts and prayers right now are with the family of Staff Sgt. Wisniewski," said Col. Michael Thomas, 127th Wing commander at Selfridge. "The death of such a young man, who had found his calling in service to our nation, is a terrible loss. Our Security Forces Squadron is a tight family and this loss is beyond painful."

Thomas ordered the U.S. flag to be flown at half-staff at Selfridge on Monday in honor of Staff Sgt. Wisniewski.

The crash happened off the base and is being investigated by local police.
