Chief Warrant Officer Erik A. Halvorsen, 40, Bennington, Vt.
Halvorsen was a career soldier. His sister, Ingrid Halvorsen, said he left service briefly to try his hand at commercial aviation. "He didn't like it and went right back in the Army," she said. Married and divorced, Halvorsen went to a family reunion at Christmas where relatives avoided the subject of war and sent him off with packages of Norwegian mackerel and sardines. Halvorsen died April 2, 2003, in the crash of his Black Hawk helicopter.
