A San Diego-based Naval helicopter deployed with the USS William P. Lawrence crashed yesterday while trying to land onboard.  They rescued 3 of the crew members, but 2 are still missing in the Red Sea.  NBC is saying the Navy is getting ready to call off the search.  My heart hurts for those families.

It really does.  Not only because they lost a loved one, but also because they may never recover a body to put to rest.
