LaBonte was one of seven CIA employees who died when a suicide bomber blew himself up at a U.S. base in Khost, Afghanistan on Dec. 30, 2009. LaBonte and the others were remembered at the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, N.Y. on Memorial Day. As part of the ceremony, a B-17 bomber dropped flowers in the Atlantic Ocean not far from the site of the Twin Towers and the World Trade Center.
