The roar. The whoosh. The cheers.
Seven Marines were killed in a collision of two helicopters near Yuma, Ariz., during night training exercises, the Marine Corps said Thursday.
Two Marine Corps helicopters collided over a remote section of the California desert during a nighttime exercise, killing seven Marines in one of the Corps' deadliest training accidents in years.
Military officials are charging three California-based Marine corporals with fraud and larceny for entering in a pair of sham marriages to collect housing funding, officials said.
“The Marine Corps is an unknown entity in some ways to many Americans,” Dooley said. “We have high recognition by name as an expeditionary fighting force, but our high-tech side and myriad career opportunities are often overlooked.”
The Navy conducted 102 flyovers last year and 54 so far this year, said Cmdr. Pauline Storum, a spokeswoman for the Navy. The Marine Corps has completed approximately 25 funeral flyovers and 14 flyovers at public events this year, said spokeswoman Lt. Maureen Dooley.
