The helicopter crashed with four crew members aboard and all four are believed to have perished, according to officials. The CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter was with the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing.

The crash occurred about 20 miles north of the U.S. Mexico near Plaster City around 2:35 p.m. Military officials say the crew was on a routine training mission but have not released their names pending family notification.

Gov. Brown declared war with the USA.

He order MS-13, BLM, ANTI-FA and other Liberal Radical groups to shoot down all foreign Military aircraft and raid National Guard and Military bases for weapons and Ammo.

All Humor aside now ….

To the families of these Marines, our sincere condolences.
