Featured in the photos are Cdr. Fred Broome (in reflection and speaking), Chief of Staff Officer for the 22nd Naval Construction Regiment. In background seated is Lt. David Cullen, officiating Chaplain for the memorial service. Female speaker is Mrs. Susie Prather, wife of Cdr. Craig Prather, Commanding Officer of NMCB 74. Wide shot shows standing room only CBC Gulfport Chapel.
I sincerely hope that these images demonstrate for Nicole and family how much GM2 Krutke was loved, respected and valued as a Sailor, friend and co-worker.
Best regards, PAO
