An Army captain has established a college trust fund for the 10-year-old who posted an iReport honoring his dad, who died in the recent Chinook helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

Capt. Jamie Schwandt says that when he learned about little Braydon Nichols’ iReport, he was gripped with a sense of urgency. He wanted to help the boy and the Nichols family in a way that would be lasting. And whatever he did, it would be more than just a move from a member of the military. It would come from a friend.

Schwandt was in Bryan Nichols’ wedding. The two served side by side in 2003.
