Plans are coming together for the memorial of Brigadier General Thomas Tinsley. The general was found dead in his home on Elmendorf Air Force Base Sunday night.
Tinsley was the top commander at Elmendorf. He reportedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. But investigators do not know whether the deadly shot to the chest was an accident.
A memorial service for the general is set for Thursday. It's set to be held in Hangar One on Elmendorf at 2 p.m. The memorial is open to all who would like to attend.
Also in lieu of flowers, military officials are asking that donations to be made to the Mother Lawrence Foundation.
