BAGHDAD, Iraq — A U.S. Marine helicopter transporting troops crashed Wednesday in the desert of western Iraq, killing 31 people, American military officials said. The crash was believed to be the deadliest single incident involving U.S. troops in Iraq. A Pentagon source said earlier that the helicopter was a CH-53 Sea Stallion.
Now there is news of a commuter train crash in Glendale, California.
I encourage you to remember these Marines and civilians in your prayers today. Pray for their families. Pray for the rescue workers.
