The Marines on Friday released a tribute video to honor the 15 Marines and a Navy sailor killed in a military plane crash earlier this week in Mississippi.
Six of the Marines and the sailor were from an elite Marine Raider battalion at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Nine were based out of Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, New York, home of a Marine Aerial Refueling and Transport Squadron.
According to Mississippi Republican Gov. Phil Bryant, the final set of remains was recovered Thursday from a farm field where the KC-130 crashed Monday. The remains were flown Thursday to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, where military officials say they will be processed by Air Force mortuary personnel and then released to their grieving families.
