Aggie Killed in Helicopter Crash in Yuma

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.
