    Thank you all very much!

    I just talked to his Mom...they are frantic, she says she knows he is gone, that she can just feel it. Cory is married & simply adored his wife. He is / was the sweetest boy you'd ever meet. He even bought me Mother's Day cards. He re-enlisted for 5 yrs & was supposed to go to Iraq a week ago. Had 1 course he had to take which they were finishing up.

    The Navy called off the search this evening, with no probablility of any survivors. They stated due to the icy conditions on the ocean hypothermia would of set in.

    The Navy may attempt to remove the helicopter off the ocean floor. They claim it sunk in 3000 ft deep area. That is hard on the families of these young fellas.

    May you rest in peace Cory! I'll always love you!!!!

    I was so sad to hear the news of this. I was even more sorry to hear that it affected one of our WS'ers personally. Just terrible news. My thoughts are with you, Cory's family and all of the families of the servicemen involved. Not to mention our servicemen and women everywhere.
