Support for Pete Lagosh's Family

Donation protected
Please help us support the family of Chief Naval Aircrewman Peter "Pete" Lagosh.

On Tuesday, June 4th, 2024, Pete gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country when he lost his life during a training evolution in Jacksonville, FL.

Pete was born on April 8th, 1983. He graduated from high school in Cudahy, Wisconsin in 2001 and joined the Navy in February 2007. Pete completed his initial recruit training in Great Lakes, IL and reported to Pensacola, FL to embark upon the rigorous training pipeline to become a Navy Rescue Swimmer and Helicopter Aircrewman. He served two tours as an MH-60S Aircrewman at Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 28 (HSC-28) where he completed multiple deployments in defense of our great nation. Additionally, he served as a Fleet Replacement instructor at HSC-2 leaving a legacy of strong aircrew generations to come. Most recently he served as the Warrior Challenge Coordinator at NTAG Richmond where he inspired many to take the same oath he took 17 years ago. Never afraid of a challenge, Pete volunteered to serve at HSC-12 in Atsugi, Japan. He passed away during a training evolution in the execution of his orders.

Pete was a loving father and husband, who always had a smile and was ready to lend a hand to anyone that needed it. This fundraiser will help the Lagosh family as they navigate this difficult transition.

If you are able, any contribution is appreciated and funds will be utilized for living expenses, housing expenses, childcare, and education costs.

Your love and support is greatly appreciated.
