Friends and family pay their respects to fallen Cpl. Jonathan D. Faircloth, an aerial observer with Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 363, Marine Aircraft Group 24, during a memorial service at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii chapel, April 6, 2011. The 22-year-old Mechanicsburg, Pa., native died and three fellow HMH-363 Marines were injured when their CH-53D Sea Stallion helicopter went down in Kaneohe Bay March 29. Faircloth joined the squadron in April 2007, and deployed with them to Iraq in 2008 and Afghanistan in 2010. His personal awards include four Air Strike Flight Medals, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal. (Photo by Lance Cpl. Reece Lodder)
