Kiowa Training Crashes Kill 4 U.S. Soldiers

LOS ANGELES - Two military helicopters crashed while on a training mission late Dec. 12 in Washington state, claiming the lives of four Army aviators, military officials said.
The cause of the crashes at a training area southwest of Joint Base Lewis-McChord is being investigated, said base spokesman Lt. Col. Gary Dangerfield.
"We will conduct a thorough investigation," he said. "We will do everything in our power to support the families of the brave soldiers who died this evening."
Weather is not believed to have been a factor in the accident, as skies were clear when the two OH-58 Kiowa choppers went down.
