Coast Guard chopper crew honored
Members of a Coast Guard helicopter crew killed in a crash off the coast of Washington state July 7 were honored Tuesday in the small southeast Alaska town where they were based.
At least 1,000 people attended a memorial service in Sitka that paid tribute to Lt. Sean D. Krueger, 33, of Seymour, Conn.; Adam C. Hoke, 40, of Great Falls; and Brett M. Banks, 33, of Rock Springs, Wyo.
The three were killed when their MH-60 Jayhawk crashed last week off La Push, Wash., as they flew home from Astoria, Ore. Krueger, the commander, left a wife and three children.
Hoke was single with one child....
