Dallas Marine among those killed in military plane crash

A North Texas Marine is among the 16 servicemen killed in a cargo plane crash in Mississippi.

The family of Staff Sgt. Joshua Snowden told FOX 4 that he was killed when a KC-130 crashed in Itta Bena. Fifteen Marines and a sailor were killed.

Snowden lived in New York, where his Marine unit was based. But the 31-year-old grew up in Dallas. His family has not been able to talk at length about his death, but the military confirmed the cargo plane left North Carolina and was headed to Arizona when it crashed in rural Mississippi. The Marine Corps said personal weapons and small arms ammunition were aboard.

My nephew is a Staff Sgt at Camp LeJeune. I am trying to get in contact with him. He likely knew some of these young men.

That is awful news. Sorry to see that happening to anyone but especially to someone that I'm assuming is a fairly young person. I hope he finds peace.

I understand. I had 34 first cousins. 4 of us were all the same age and one of those died when we were 42 (Aids). My brother passed when I was 51 (5 days after my birthday, he was 54). Lost many classmates already; including my ex SIL in May. It doesn't get any easier.
