From Find A Grave:

Brian Gahn graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1983 and was in flight training in Beeville TX when his plane crashed.

Brian was the eldest son and third child of seven children. He was the son of Dennis Brian Gahn and Jeanne Gary Gahn. Born in Wareham MA., raised in Japan, California, Oklahoma, and finally Louisiana. He was always an active child, by today's standards he would have been considered ADD. I remember my mother's surprise when my parents were told Brian had the IQ of a genius. This was when he was in 7th grade. I was equally surprised after all he was just my pesty little brother who couldn't keep still. He was good-natured and easy to get along with.

He was preceded in death by his brother Dennis Michael Gahn.
