Black Hawk Down

Death won that night - that foggy night when the Black Hawk crashed into the murky Santa Rosa Sound. Vigils were held on the beach, candle light casting an eerie glow through the fog as people prayed for survivors - but there were none. 3/13/15 For Rob Carmack's Fibonacci contest. (This happened on 3/10/15 near where I live. 7 marines and 4 National Guardsmen lost their lives in a training mission.)

Thank you, Tim. It is a tragedy. Some of the deceased had spent more than one tour in Afghanistan only to die in a training mishap in the US.
