To our brothers and sisters of the Yankees and Raider Bn, there are no words for us to express to ease your loss.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to you.  VMGRs have had a long run of success without a loss of this type for some time now. You never think it’ll happen on your watch, in your community, in your squadron or unit.  We lost some amazing Marines from the aircrew side and CSO community.  It’s important that we remember those that we lost, support their families, and continue the mission that still needs to be done for our nation.  Answers will come later.
