From Kabul, Afghanistan via NYT:

United States and Afghan troops today reached the site of a downed military helicopter that crashed in a mountainous area this week, the United States military announced. The military said Wednesday that the aircraft appeared to have been brought down by hostile fire.

Keep the fallen heroes and their families in your prayers.

The milbloggers have full coverage of the crash and the 16 brave troops whose bodies have been recovered:

Smash has a roundup. Matthew Heidt, a Navy SEAL, has details on the crew and will discuss the crash on Hugh Hewitt’s show today. Writes Heidt:

This is a very sad day for the Naval Special Warfare Community, and I would ask that those of you who are able, will donate to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation for the benefit of these families.

Done.

Hugh Hewitt will also have on Michael Yon, reporting from Baghdad, and other top milbloggers, as well as Mark Steyn. Listen online here. The show will be raising money for the United Warrior Survivor Foundation.
