REMEMBERING COLUMBIA:  HAM CREATES ON-LINE MEMORIAL

A former Amateur Radio Newsline Young Ham of the Year ward recipient has 
created a lasting Internet tribute to the space shuttle Columbia.  

The memorial website was created by Kevin Boudreaux, N-5-X-M-H, of
Orlando 
Florida.  Boudreaux, who grew up just outside New Orleans was the
recipient 
of our 1993 "Young Ham of the Year Award" for his organizing Amateur
Radio 
emergency communicatios following a devistating hurricaine.    

Today Boudreaux is a Manager with the Hilton Hotels and a professional 
website designer.   He tells Amateur Radio Newsline that he was so
personally 
touched by the Columbia tragedy that he created this memorial website to
the 
shuttle and its crew.  

The webpages he has created are filled with facts about the orbiter and
its 
mission along with photos and short biographies of its STS-107 crew. 
Kevin 
also provides links to other Columbia memorial websites along with the 
complete statement of President George W. Bush when he sadly went on the
air 
to let the world know that the Columbia was lost.     

Kevin was only 14 when he went out to help his community in time of
disaster. 
He was 15 when he received the “Young Ham of the Year Award” and his 
dedication has never stopped.  

You can view his web tribute to the fallen Columbia and its crew at
