Wisconsin Marine Among Chopper Crash Victims
A relative says one of the military members killed in a helicopter crash during a training exercise along the Florida Panhandle has roots in Wisconsin. Here is the latest.
According to The Associated Press, Lora Waraksa, of Port Washington Wisconsin, says her brother-in-law, Marine Kerry Kemp, died in the crash. Waraksa says his remains have been recovered and her sister, Jenna Kemp, was notified by the Marines of his death overnight.
Waraksa says her brother-in-law was a "proud Marine, a loving husband and most wonderful father." She says her sister and Kemp have a child about 1 year old. Waraksa says Kemp and her sister met at Port Washington High School. She says he was stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.
The search for the remaining lost men and women will continue today. Thoughts and prayers to all involved and for America.
