Troy Duaine Woodall

Lieutenant Troy Woodall was killed in a helicopter crash while attempting to locate a drug suspect west of Brantley, Crenshaw County.

He and another agent had landed after spotting a marijuana grow during an observation flight. The other agent took one of two suspects into custody at the grow site. Lieutenant Woodall was taking off in an attempt to locate the second suspect, but the helicopter struck a powerline and crashed.

The powerline remained in contact with the helicopter, causing it to catch on fire.

Lieutenant Woodall was a U.S. Army veteran and served with the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board for 20 years. He is survived by his wife and four children.

I knew Troy from US Army Reserves. He and I became Warrant Officers at the same time, 1975, Interrogation of Prisoners of War Technician as it was known then, HUMINT Collection Technician now. He was a great and skilled officer, instructor, patriot and friend. Lots of anecdotes, but not enough space. I have never forgotten him.
