    Richard, the C-130 is the plane my son flew when he was on active duty.

    I remember when he took us into the cockpit; I couldn't get over all the buttons, gauges and switches. He reminded me that when I was working in the ICU, there were a lot of the same things. You get used to what you're working with.

    I was reading today about some quilts that are being made in honor of these wonderful people. They are memorial quilts. There is supposed to be one that's traveling through Florida right now. I want to find one I can contribute to and dedicate my block to one of these fallen soldiers.

    Thank you again, Gretchen, for posting this valuable information for all of us to see. The sadness is overwhelming for me but not nearly as overwhelming as it is for their families and friends.


    I've been Boo'd...
    Thanks Barry!

    Crew of the C-130 and UH-1 crash.

    The two Marine pilots were conducting routine training about 15 miles off San Clemente Island when their helicopter collided with the U.S. Coast Guard plane.

    Marine Corps Air Station Miramar identified them as Maj. Samuel Leigh and 1st Lt. Thomas Claiborne, both with Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 469.

    The Coast Guard's seven missing personnel were stationed at Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento, California, where their aircraft was based.

    Castillo has said that an investigation was beginning with the Marine Corps. A large debris field has been located, and pieces have been collected, the Coast Guard spokesman said.

    The Coast Guard identified its seven missing personnel as
    Lt. Cmdr. Che J. Barnes of Capay, California, aircraft commander;
    Lt. Adam W. Bryant of Crewe, Virginia, co-pilot;
    Chief Petty Officer John F. Seidman of Stockton, California, flight engineer; Petty Officer 2nd Class Carl P. Grigonis of Mayfield Heights, Ohio, navigator; Petty Officer 2nd Class Monica L. Beacham of Decaturville, Tennessee, radio operator;
    Petty Officer 2nd Class Jason S. Moletzsky of Norristown, Pennsylvania, air crew; and
