The U.S. Army Special Operations Command on Monday identified the five Army aviation special operations forces killed when their helicopter crashed in the Eastern Mediterranean over the weekend, calling each a “national treasure” whose loss cut deeply. The military’s European Command said the UH-60 helicopter went down during an air refueling mission as part of military training. One of the five service members who died was, Staff Sgt. Tanner W. Grone, 26, of Gorham, New Hampshire. They were all part of the Army’s 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment based at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Grone enlisted in the Army in 2017 as a UH-60 repairer. He served as a flight instructor and crew chief for the 160th.
