Schumer Floor Remarks on Airplane Crash In Mississippi

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today delivered remarks on the Senate floor. Below are his remarks:

Mr. President, before I begin, I want to send my most sincere condolences to the Marine Corps, who lost 15 of their finest today in a plane crash in Mississippi, as well as one Navy corpsman.

It was the deadliest crash in the Marine Corp family since 2005.

According to reports, the aircraft that crashed this morning was based at Stewart Airport Base, in my home state of New York.

Our hearts break for the families of these sailors and marines.  We mourn their loss and wish comfort to their families and loved ones in this time of tragedy. May they rest in peace.
