When there are no words...

We pray. We think positive thoughts. We remain respectfully silent. We come together as a Coast Guard community to be there for each other, even if just in spirit when our family members are hurting.

Please keep the family members, friends, and shipmates of the missing crew members of the Coast Guard C-130 and the Marine Corps helicopter crew in mind when praying your intentions or sending positive vibes this week in whatever way you do or believe for our military members.

From, I've borrowed the following, which was released by the AP:

Coast Guard identifies 9 missing in midair crash
By The Associated Press (AP)

The U.S. Coast Guard has identified nine people feared dead at sea following an air collision between a Coast Guard aircraft and a Marine Corps helicopter.

The missing crew members from the Coast Guard C-130 are all stationed in Sacramento, Calif., where their aircraft was based. You can read over at CGBlog.or for more:

At the academy, Lt. Adam Bryant was a football player with my better half. With such a small family, our Guard has so many that are personally impacted by this tragedy. Please let me know if our forum plans to organize *something* for the families. I would be happy to lend a hand.
