On the afternoon of July 10th, 2017...
...a Marine Corps KC-130T Hercules crashed in Leflore County, Mississippi, killing 15 Marines and 1 sailor onboard. The disaster was the single worst loss of life in Marine aviation since 2005. Help us by donating, and proceeds go directly to the squadron families without fee from us. You will help fund things like airfare, hotels, rental cars, meals, and even unit memorials.
The "Yankees" are a Reserve Marine Corps KC-130T Hercules squadron based at Stewart Air National Guard Base, about an hour north of New York City. The aircraft was transporting a Marine Special Operations unit from the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion, based at Camp Lejeune, NC, to NAF El Centro, CA, when the mishap occurred.
The families and squadron affected by this mishap have given The Wingman Foundation their full support in launching this fundraiser to help with current and future expenses. Rest assured, 100% of all donations will go to those affected.
