Staff Sergeant Cole Condiff was a Combat Controller assigned to an elite Air Force Special Tactics Squadron at Hurlburt Field, FL. While leading out an airborne training mission, Cole was the jumpmaster prepping his team for a safe exit and was prematurely snatched from a C-130 over the Gulf of Mexico. He has been missing several miles offshore since 5 November. His status changed from missing to deceased on 8 November after rescue efforts were unable to find him. Recovery efforts are ongoing.
Like any true Texan, Cole raised his hand and voluntarily deployed multiple times in support of our nations efforts to counter violent extremist organizations.
More importantly, Cole balanced his warrior life with a hilarious and contagious energy that came
second only to his love of his SOF brothers.
He was defined by his loyalty to his sweet wife and daughters, 1 and 4 years old. Cole loved playing with his girls and teaching them to be little adventurers like him. He was devoted fully to the three of them and their plans to be “together forever” as a family.
He lived by the motto of “All things we do in memory of our God, our religion, our freedom, our peace, our wives, and our children.”
Our hearts and prayers are with the young Condiff family as they carry on their husband and daddy’s legacy. They gratefully watch the men and women of our Nation both continue in his search and continue to defend our way of life.
All donations are to assist Cole’s surviving wife and daughters during their coming transition, travel, stabilization, future education, etc.
