OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee released a statement today on the death of Lt. David Bauders.
"Trudi and I send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of Lt. David Bauders who served in 176th Engineer Company of the National Guard. Lt. Bauders was also recently hired to serve as a trooper in our Washington State Patrol. He was a young man who was building a future wholly devoted to serving and protecting the people of our state and our nation. The loss of this young life is one I know all 7 million Washingtonians join me in mourning."
