Funeral held in FL for fallen 106th Air Rescue Wing member
Funeral services were held Friday for the last of the four 106th Air Rescue Wing members killed in a chopper crash in Iraq.
A funeral Mass for Capt. Andreas O'Keeffe, of Center Moriches, took place at the Incarnation Catholic Church in Tampa, Florida.
The 37-year-old was one of four members of the Westhampton Beach-based team killed in the crash.
A total of seven men died in Iraq last month when their helicopter went down during a search and rescue mission in Iraq's Anbar province.
Officials say they believe the helicopter hit a power line.
A military memorial service for O'Keeffe will be held on or near the Westhampton base on Aug. 3.
