Fort Benning remembers MSgt Joshua Gavulic

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA - It was a somber day at Fort Benning as family, friends, and comrades mourned the loss of Master Sergeant Joshua Gavulic at Fort Benning Friday afternoon.

He was the Operations Superintendent for the 17th Special Tactics Squadron based at Fort Benning. Gavulic died last week after a parachute training accident in Arizona.  Retired master sergeant Eric Brandenburg says he will miss Gavulic for many reasons, mostly because of his strong character.

“What I’m going to miss the most about him is he is a great family man. Great warrior, somebody you can count on,” said Brandenburg.

Master Sergeant Gavulic leaves behind his wife Alyssa and six children. He was a highly decorated airman. He earned 26 different awards including two bronze stars.
