On Tuesday a crazed person attacked a Fairfax County police station a few miles from my office. Killed in the attack was Detective Vicky Armel, the wife of Tyler Armel, a fraternity brother of mine in Alpha Sigma Phi at Radford University. From all accounts, Vicky was a wonderful person.
I didn't know Tyler personally as he graduated a few years before me, but like all the members of our community I grieve for him, his family, and the members of the Fairfax Police Department.
Tyler and Vicky have two elementary-school age children.The family has set up a trust fund for them. Donations are being accepted at the following address:
Armel Family Trust Fund
