Officials from Aviano AB, Italy, and members of the local Santa Lucia di Piave communities came together on Nov. 8, 2008, to dedicate a memorial to the four airmen and two Army aircrew that died one year earlier in the crash of an Army UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter southwest of the base. Here, Lt. Col. Jim Browning, chaplain of Aviano’s 31st Fighter Wing, hands SrA. Michael Costly, one of the five crash survivors, a yellow rose to place on the memorial.
