Relief Support For Families Affected By RAF Lakenheath Helicopter Crash
On January 7, 2014, four members of our U.S. Air Force perished in a devastating helicopter crash in North Norfolk, England. They and the helicopter were stationed at RAF Lakenheath. Whatever money that is collected will be divided up equally between the four families affected in hopes to cover any monetary loss they may suffer. Please help and donate now. Every little bit helps.

Still holding the entire squadron close in prayer
RIP OUR FRIENDS YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBER HERE IN THE UK
This hit close to home for us. My best friend, Lisa, and her husband, Dan, are stationed at Lakenheath. Thank you to all of you for your sacrifice and service to make this world a place where I can safely raise my children. Godspeed to the families and colleagues of the fallen.
Very sad to hear this news. I read about the fundraising and think it is a brilliant idea so decided to contribute. People have been so generous x
Taking care of those who lay their life on the line daily to secure our freedom, priceless.
Nearly $25,000 in just 2 days! God works wonders in tragic situations. The sense of community and support here has been tremendous. Our God is good, always! Even when at times it seems he isn't present he ends up showing up in big ways! God bless these families, and may they begin to heal from this in time .
It's just a joy to see the out pouring of love to these families!!!! What a mighty force we are when we band together!!!!!
As retired Rescue, events of this week have been consuming our thoughts. As hard as it is, we have been so touched to be watching this outpouring for our Rescue "families." We knew/know some but we love and admire all. TOML: Honoring the honorabletoday and always. Thank you for your sacrifice. And thank you, Caitlyn, for giving those of us no longer active to give back. This site demonstrates the literal definition of awesome.
Sending an extra load of prayers to the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives in service for us and for all those serving at RAF Lakenheath. My daughter and son-in-law just arrived at RAF Mildenhall six weeks ago and I can't even imagine the depth of loss felt by these families. A grateful Air Force Mom.
My heart goes out to the families of those who lost their lives. I was fortunate enough to live at RAF Lakenheath when my dad was stationed there from 1986-1990. It saddens me that this tragedy occurred at one of the many places I have called home.
Prayers to the families. My son-in-law, Matt Porter, Daughter Kim Porter and their three daughters Hannah, Caitlin & Kay are at RAF Lakenheath. Thoughts and prayers to everyone at Lakenheath for their service and safety.
God bless the families, friends and the military communities at RAF Lakenheath.
We were both ever so sorry to hear of the totally tragic accident of the 48th FW Pavehawk helicopter recently in Norfolk, and we would just like to offer our sincerest and heartfelt condolences to the aircrew involved in the tragic accident and also to their families and loved ones. We will always consider our American friends our good neighbours and allies and long may that friendship continue!
