Military Officials ID Americans Killed in Crash

The Department of Defense has identified another San Diego-based service member killed in a Black Hawk helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan last week.

Sean P. Carson, 32, was assigned to an explosive ordnance disposal mobile unit in San Diego. Carson was an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Petty Officer, first class.

The soldiers identified were part of Schofield's 25th Infantry Division.

The crash happened during a firefight with insurgents in a remote area of southern Afghanistan. It's one of the deadliest air disasters of a war now into its second decade.

In addition to Carson’s death, a Navy SEAL who lived in San Diego was also among the military personnel who died in the crash.

Harold Voorhees told The Associated Press that 27-year-old David "Davey" John Warsen's fiancee, Karlyn Deveau, was notified of his death in San Diego, where they lived before his deployment. Voorhees said Karlyn Deveau was traveling to Michigan to make funeral arrangements.
