NATO mourns the passing of a dedicated member

Most of you never knew her. She was a Justice in our ruling body, and was a pleasure on IRC. She was a fellow Hoosier, sharing that with a few of my real life friends in NATO and myself. Allyson was not vocal on the OWF, but she was very vocal in the forums and we all quickly grew to love her. about three months ago she was elected to serve as a justice and shortly after being elected, she went inactive. We tried to contact her to no avail and eventually her nation deleted. We assumed she just lost interest, or was busy with school and her real life job as a police officer.

Tonight i came home and saw a new cadet thread that claimed to have been recruited by allyson. After asking how she was doing, he responded:

I had sent a member of your Alliance a message in game a few days ago which I why I've actually taken up playing CN.

Several months ago, a close friend and coworker of mine tried to recruit me in playing Cybernations. Unfortunately, family, work, and school took a bigger priority. I am contacting you now as she had advised you as a contact to enter the alliance she was a member of because of unfortunate circumstances. I've registered for the alliance forums and was going to post this but it seems one must be approved to do so.

I believe the cybernations community knew her as Allyson. However, it is with great sorrow I report to her online friends that Allison Greenwald; Captain - United States Army, Indiana National Guard; Patrolman - Indianapolis Metro Police Dept; and Counselor - Mayor's Advisory Council on People with Disabilities, has passed away today from injuries endured during a fatal helicopter crash on 20 June 2009 while serving in Afghanistan.

While in formation Captain Greenwald's UH-60 Blackhawk suffered a critical mechanical failure. Pilots on the mission credit her skill in attempting to land the helicopter and avoiding collision with other aircraft and civillian structures.

I was fortunate enough to have studied beside her through undergrad, work beside her within the community as an officer, and again as we entered law school.

I can't even explain what I am feeling right now. As you all know, the community is what makes the game fun. I had always felt horrible when I saw other alliances posting these, and wished it would never have to be NATO's turn.

More details are pending. The crash was on the 20th and Allison succumbed to her injuries on the 23rd. I will be notifying her real life friend who posted this information of this thread and I hope he shares it with her family to show that even in a meaningless online game, she was loved.

Rest in peace Allison Greenwald.

I know I'm going to get in trouble for even saying this, but....

I cannot find a record of anyone with the last name 'Greenwald' included in U.S. casualty lists in Afghanistan.

No Kingzog, I understand. Like I said, I don't have all the details yet, and maybe he doesn't either. I will keep looking, could you give me the source you are using please?

I swear, someone will get hurt by my hand. Thank you KingZog for pointing that out.

We have real life military personnel in NATO looking into this as we speak. After looking into this further and receiving info from our military guy in NATO, this is apparently a sick hoax being played on us by someone, using Allyson's deleted nation as a joke.

Thanks for bringing it up again Zog. When I find out who is behind this, something with be done.

I apologize for even starting this !@#$@#$ topic. We are almost one hundred percent this is someone playing a cruel joke on us. I am so sorry for falling into the trap guys. I feel retarded.

What I want to say about this right now would probably get me banned. Who would do such a thing?

Its better that this was a sick joke than actuality. Hopefully your friend is doing just fine and this was someones jokes. My thoughts will be with you regardless.

Why would anyone think someone dying while serving their country is funny?

It's sad that some people would think of this as a "joke"

I hope she stays safe

Relieving though, that she is ok. that is truth.

and tbh, i think a blackhawk going down will come over on the news, especially if it almost hit civlian structures (u know news people, Vultures circling)

But as it was said earlier in this post. Best a Sick joke then the truth.

Hope u find the Tool who did this and knock him flat :P
