Seven Marines and four soldiers were missing early Wednesday following an Army helicopter crash in Florida, officials said.
A search and rescue operation was launched after one of two UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters participating in a routine nighttime training mission crashed, Eglin Air Force Base spokesman Andy Bourland said.
Bourland said it was too soon to say what caused the crash, but that there were "weather issues" overnight.

Search and rescue teams have located some debris which began to collect in the search area, Bourland added.

I am sure that's not the case here but my uncle was in the army and told me that sometimes those killed in battle somewhere would be later presented as having died in some accident or training
