Fallen aviators remembered ... Lt. Cameron Hall, Lt. Ryan Betton, Lt. j.g. Jerry Smith

Three young men, three bright futures ... lost in a tragic plane crash in the Atlantic Ocean. One leaves behind a wife and two-year-old son; all leave behind family and friends.

A memorial service was held yesterday at the Navy base in Norfolk ... a time to remember fallen heroes.

As bagpipes played in the background - with heavy hearts - they exited the chapel. There were tributes and then silence interrupted by the familiar sound of jets flying overhead. As the breeze picked up below, it was almost as though three fallen heroes were waving goodbye from above.
Read the entire tribute here.

Information is available here for donations toward a memorial scholarship fund for Lt. Ryan Betton's son.

A grateful nation mourns three fallen heroes....
