SERGEANT OF THE GUARD DMYTRO ZINCHENKO

Board of Director Member of the European Paratrooper

18.03.1967 - 14.10.2016

With deepest regrets we have the sad duty to inform you that our dear friend and comrade, Sergeant of the Guard Dmytro Zinchenko passed away yesterday in a parachute accident in Marion Country, Florida, USA. Sergeant of the Guard Dmytro Zinchenko was an Airborne Instructor, an Ukrainian Reserve Paratrooper and a decorated Soviet–Afghan War combat veteran. While serving with the Red Army Airborne Forces in the Afghan war he was deployed to Gardez, Paktia Province, Afghanistan where he was involved in several combat actions from 1985 to 1987. By his demise we have not only lost a Director, a Staff Member and an Instructor of the European Paratrooper Association but also a good friend and true comrade, a wonderful person, valued, respected, and loved. Our thoughts and our deepest regrets in these hours are also with his family and we ask God to accept his immortal soul into the eternal Heaven reserved for Brave Warriors.
