A Spokane man was among the Marines killed in an aviation training accident in Arizona on Wednesday.
Lance Cpl. Nickoulas H. Elliott, 21, died along with six other Marines when two helicopters collided.
The Marine Corps released the names of all seven of the dead Marines late Friday, as crews worked to clean up the accident site on a sprawling desert range near Yuma, Ariz.
Details of the personal lives of the seven Marines killed in one of the Corps’ deadliest aviation training accidents in years began emerging Friday as families across the nation expressed their grief, but a Marines spokesman said Elliott’s family had not released a statement.
In addition to Elliott, the dead were listed as Maj. Thomas A. Budrejko, 37, of Montville, Conn.; Capt. Michael M. Quin, 28, of Purcellville, Va.; Capt. Benjamin N. Cerniglia, 31, of Montgomery, Ala.; Sgt. Justin A. Everett, 33, of Clovis, Calif.; Lance Cpl. Corey A. Little, 25, of Marietta, Ga.; and Capt. Nathan W. Anderson, 32, of Amarillo, Texas.
Anderson was based in Yuma and the others were from Camp Pendleton in Southern California, the West Coast’s largest base.
