5 Marines killed in helicopter crash are identified

The U.S. Marine Corps on Friday released the identities of the five Marines who were killed after their helicopter crashed while flying from Nevada to California during a routine training mission.

They were

  • Lance Cpl. Donovan Davis, 21, of Olathe, Kansas
  • Sgt. Alec Langen, 23, of Chandler, Arizona
  • Capt. Benjamin Moulton, 27, of Emmett, Idaho
  • Capt. Jack Casey, 26, of Dover, New Hampshire
  • Capt. Miguel Nava, 28, of Traverse City, Michigan

All were assigned to Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 361, Marine Aircraft Group 16, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing. They were based at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California.

The helicopter they were in, a CH-53E Super Stallion, went missing Tuesday and was found Wednesday in a remote area covered in snow in Southern California.

The crew was flying from Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, north of Las Vegas, to Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California, “when the aircraft was reported overdue,” the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing said in a statement.

It’s unclear what caused the crash, which occurred as a winter storm brought days of heavy rain and snow to the San Diego area.

An investigation is ongoing.
