    Wreckage of missing US Marine helicopter found in Nepal mountains

    Wreckage of missing US Marine helicopter found in Nepal mountains | Fox News

    U.S. and Nepalese military officials said Friday that the wreckage of a U.S. Marine helicopter that disappeared earlier this week had been found.

    The wreckage of the UH-1 "Huey" helicopter was found eight miles north of the town of Charikot, near where the aircraft had vanished on Tuesday while delivering humanitarian aid to villages hit by two deadly earthquakes, according to U.S. Pacific Command spokesman Maj. Dave Eastburn.

    There was no immediate confirmation of the fate of the six U.S. Marines and two Nepalese soldiers who had been on the chopper when it disappeared. Nepal's Defense Secretary Iswori Poudyal described the wreckage as being "in pieces," adding "there are no chances of any survivors."
    I'd like to honor our service personnel who were conducting humanitarian missions in Nepal to help the earthquake victims.

    They died helping those they didn't even know. It doesn't get much more noble than that. Semper Fi.

    Unfortunate loss, best wishes to their families.

    So very sad. I hope their families find some peace and comfort.

    I'll second that.

    One of the Marines was a local. He was a hero before, but even more so now.

    Mountain flying is rough. Mountain flying in a helicopter is really rough. Mountain flying in that mountain range in a helicopter? Takes some serious courage to do that.
