Family members and friends have identified a few of the fallen soldiers from the deadly helicopter crash in Afghanistan over the weekend.
Jonas Kelsall, Robert James Reeves, Michael Strange, John Brown, Patrick Hamburger, Kraig Vickers and Aaron Vaughn are among the 30 Americans who died in action when a Taliban fighter with a rocket-propelled grenade reportedly fired on the chopper. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war.
Nearly two dozen Navy SEALs died in the attack, and many lived in Coronado for several months during their initial training.
Kelsall, a 33-year-old lieutenant commander for the Navy, was a member of SEAL Team Seven. He is survived by his wife and father, who is the Lakewood Chamber Of Commerce CEO and president, reported Beachcomber. Kelsall trained in Basic Underwater Demolition in San Diego after enlisting. He leaves behind his wife and father.
