COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AFNS) -- Former Air Force thrower Capt. David (Lissy) Lyon was killed on Dec. 27, while conducting combat operations near Kabul, Afghanistan.

Lyon, a 2008 Academy graduate, was a three-year letter winner for the Falcons' track and field team and a Mountain West champion in the shot put.

A member of the 21st Logistics Readiness Squadron at Peterson Air Force Base, Lyon was killed when a vehicle-born improvised explosive device was detonated near his convoy. He was one of 10 killed in the attack, along with two NATO military personnel and seven Afghan forces.
