I just want to point out that a soldier died during this crash. I feel it should have been mentioned- Sergeant Ezra Dawson, 31, of Las Vegas, Nevada, died January 17, 2009, in Konar Province, Afghanistan when the Chinook helicopter he was in made a hard landing under combat conditions. He was assigned to the {RECON} 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Hood, Texas. The Army did not acknowledge the chinook was shot down at that time, even though soldiers at Firebase Vegas witnessed the rocket-propelled grenade hit the helo. Another soldier from FB Vegas was also wounded. -Joanne
