FORT HOOD — More than 300 soldiers from III Corps headquarters joined Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland, family and friends to remember the life of Chief Warrant Officer 2 Andre George Nance on Thursday at the Spirit of Fort Hood Chapel.

Nance, 34, recently served as an air traffic and air space controller for III Corps’ Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion. He was found unresponsive at his on-post hotel room at Fort Rucker, Ala., where he had been attending military schools prior to reporting to Fort Bragg, N.C., where he was to be joined by his wife, Staff Sgt. Tomora Nance, and their 4-year-old son Aiden.

Chief Warrant Officer 3 Krystal Hoover shared some of her memories of Nance, a long-time friend and battle buddy.

“He was a true battle buddy, brother, confidant, friend, therapist (and) problem solver,” Hoover said.

The Army has not yet released the cause of Nance’s death as it is still under investigation.
