Our beloved son, brother, and patriot, Forrest Brent Sibley, lost his life in the service of God and country on August 26, 2015 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He was deployed with the 21st Special Tactics Squadron USAF, on his fourth deployment. He completed Combat Control School at Pope Army Airfield, Combat Dive School, Airborne, Military Freefall School and was a Joint Terminal Attack Controller. Forrest’s mission was liaison for Air-To-Ground Precision Guided Munitions for Special Operations Close Air Support.
He was a born leader and, as an avid outdoorsman, loved to hunt and fish with his Dad and Grandfather. He was naturally curious, patient, fearless, and wanted to experience life as he saw it. Forrest loved all sports, especially college football as a Florida Gator fan.
