    Lt. Col. Mario D. Carazo, 41, of Springfield, Ohio, and Maj. James M. Weis, 37, of Toms River, N.J., were killed Thursday while on a combat mission in Helmand province. The circumstances of the crash are under investigation.

    Carazo and Weis were assigned to Marine Aircraft Group 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, 1st Marine Expeditionary Force. The 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing is headquartered at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego; Cobra squadrons are based at Camp Pendleton.

    My husband watched their helicopter being brought in slung under another Chinook. So sad...
