One of the seven marines killed in the collision of two helicopters near Yuma, Arizona on Wednesday was a Texas A&M graduate.
It happened above the desert on the Arizona-California border when a Cobra helicopter crashed with a Huey.
Captain Nathan Anderson was a graduate of Texas A&M (Class of 2002) and was a member of the Corps of Cadets.
He commanded Company H-1 his senior year, and was also a member of the Ross Volunteers.
He is the 27th Aggie to die since the 9-11 terror attacks while serving our country in the military.
The military is trying to figure out the cause of the crash.
