The U.S. Marine Corps and the state of Mississippi dedicated a memorial to the fallen passengers and crew of Yanky 72 during a ceremony at Mississippi Valley State University in Greenwood, Mississippi, July 14th. On July 10, 2017, 15 Marines and a Navy corpsman with Marine Corps Special Operations Command lost their lives in a KC-130T plane crash in Mississippi while training. Following the ceremony, about 30 members of the 'Rucking Raiders' set off on a 900-mile ruck march from Mississippi to MARSOC headquarters in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Teams of marchers will be on the road around the clock for the upcoming weeks, relaying rucksacks of dirt and sand from the crash site and memorial site to Camp Lejeune where they plan to plant a tree at MARSOC headquarters.
