For most people, September 9, 2011, was just like any other day. The weather was warm and the sun was out as summer was winding down. However, for Todd and Jaimi Calfee, that is one day they and their family will never forget as a drunk driver took the life of their daughter, Alexis, and her boyfriend, Christopher Oberg. “We call it our own personal 9-11,” he said. “We have never been the same since that day.” The Calfee’s shared their personal, heart-wrenching story with members of the 55th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron and 97th Intelligence Squadron during four all-calls designed to make driving drunk personal to the units.
