WASHINGTON D.C. (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Members of Congress surrounded U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Thursday as she led the group in a moment of silence for the 12 U.S. Marines who died in a helicopter crash off Oahu’s North Shore in January.

“We must never forget the risk that our service members take every single day, whether they're in training or in combat, as they put their lives on the line for the security of our nation,” she said.

Following her remarks, Gabbard then listed off the names of each of the Marines whose lives were claimed in the accident on Jan. 14.

That night, two CH-53E Super Stallions collided about two miles off Haleiwa, launching a five-day, multiple-agency search-and-rescue operation. The search was suspended with no survivors found.
