RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Army Guard members are marking the ten-year anniversary of a helicopter crash that killed two of their members in Afghanistan.

A ceremony scheduled Friday morning at the Army Aviation Support Facility will honor Chief Warrant Officer 3 John Flynn and Sgt. Patrick Stewart. The two were killed on Sept. 25, 2005, when their helicopter was shot down by hostile fire south of Kabul.

Three other Americans died in the attack.

Flynn died at age 36 and left behind a wife and two young children. He was a Sparks resident and graduated from Reno High School before becoming a helicopter pilot.

Stewart died at age 35 and left behind a wife. He was a Fernley resident and a Washoe High School graduate who also served in Desert Storm and Korea.
