Last Known Activity
Spc. Spencer C. Duncan, U.S. Army
Spencer Duncan, 21, was from Olathe, Kan. He was assigned to the 7th Battalion, 158th Aviation Regiment (General Support Aviation Battalion), New Century, Kan., according to the U.S. Department of Defense. At the family's home in Olathe, an American flag flies out front. A yellow ribbon is tied around a tree in the front yard as well. Neighbors say Duncan' mother placed that ribbon there the day he left for Afghanistan last May. Now he comes home to his final resting place. "Spencer wanted to make it a safer place for our country and this is a gift from Spencer to this country," said neighbor Myrna Rock. Neighbors say that Duncan's younger brother Tanner joined the Marines last spring. They say Tanner signed up because he was inspired by his older brother. The Olathe South graduate joined the military in 2008 and had been in Afghanistan since May. - From WDAF-TV

Comments/Citation
Spc. Spencer C. Duncan, 21, of Olathe, Kan. He was assigned to the 7th Battalion, 158th Aviation Regiment (General Support Aviation Battalion), New Century, Kan. Spc. Duncan was the door gunner who told friends that the stark landscape of Afghanistan reminded him of Kansas. He joined the military in 2008 and had been in Afghanistan since late May. Spencer had written to friends about how much he loved working as a door gunner on a Chinook helicopter. But The Kansas City Star reported that he also told friends that he missed Kansas sunsets and lying in a truck bed listening to the radio and cuddling with his sweetie. After graduating from high school, Spencer enlisted in the United States Army Reserves in June of 2008. He received his initial basic training at Fort Knox, Ky. He completed Advanced Individual Training as a Medium Helicopter Repairman at Fort Eustis, Va. He worked at the Aviation Support Facility at New Center AirCenter, Olathe. First he was an aircraft mechanic and later he trained to become a Chinook door gunner. His unit was deployed to Operation Enduring Freedom in March of 2011. He loved God, his family, his friends, his country, and his dog, Dixie. Spencer was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Lee H. Moore. He is survived by his parents, Dale and Megan Duncan of the home; two brothers, Tanner Duncan, a recruit in the U.S. Marine Corp.; and Calder Duncan, of the home; paternal grandparents, Charles and Jane Duncan, Broken Arrow, Ok.; a maternal grandmother, Mary Beth Moore, Rockaway Beach, Or.; and a large and loving extended family.
