Americans among the dead in Sinai helicopter crash.
A helicopter belonging to an international peacekeeping force has crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, killing five U.S. Army soldiers among seven dead, according to an Army official. “It is with great sadness we confirm five U.S. Army soldiers were killed in a helicopter crash while supporting the ...Multinational Force and Observers (MFO)," an Army official told Military Times. "Once all Next of Kin have been notified, we will provide additional information.” A defense official also confirmed local reports to Military Times that there is “zero indication of malicious activity” involved in the crash. The units and service branches of those killed have not yet been released. Roughly 400 National Guardsmen participate in an observer mission in the peninsula region.
My deep condolences. The deceased US soldiers were identified as:
Capt. Seth Vernon Vandekamp, 31, from Katy, Texas
Chief Warrant Officer 3 Dallas Gearld Garza, 34, from Fayetteville, North Carolina
Chief Warrant Officer 2 Marwan Sameh Ghabour, 27, from Marlborough, Massachusetts
Staff Sgt. Kyle Robert McKee, 35, from Painesville, Ohio
Sgt. Jeremy Cain Sherman, 23, from Watseka, Illinois
A US soldier in critical condition was flown to an Israeli hospital. One French and one Czech soldier also died.
3 days have passed and still not a word from Trump. Perhaps he's too busy pouting over his election loss.
