Earlier today, the Navy released the identities of all 16 of the service members aboard the doomed KC-130 refueling tanker that crashed in Mississippi, July 10, 2017.

The men have ties in all corners of the nation, with nine based out of Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, New York.  Six of the Marines and one Navy corpsman were from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, members of the elite MARSOC (Marines Special Operations Command) 2nd Raider Battalion.

The mid-air explosion remains a mystery until the investigation is complete.
