JC Dodd Memorial

On January 17, 2018, Retired CHP Officer JC Dodd was in a Bell UH-1H helicopter in New Mexico with 5 other people when it crashed in a remote area.  JC Dodd died enroute to the hospital.  I am trying to raise enough money to purchase a memorial bench at the New Mexico Military Institute where JC went to High School.  This man was one of the greatest men I have ever flown with in the Highway Patrol.  He was skilled, caring, and one of those people that would give you the shirt off his back if it would help you.  He was also an amazing animal lover.  During hurricane Katrina, he rented a helicopter at his own expense to go rescue stranded animals.  Who does that!!!!??????  JC, that's who.  I am trying to honor his memory by raising enough funds to have a beautiful bench installed at the Military Institute to honor his memory.  I have never done something like this before, but I ask for your help in making this a reality.  He deserves this more than you know.  As a rescue helicopter pilot, he has saved countless lives, both people and animals.  Help me honor him.
