Sgt_BurnA Belizean who served with the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division, in the US Military has died after he and three other soldiers crashed during training exercise in New Mexico. International reports indicate that twenty seven year old Sergeant Dwight W. Burn was the crew chief aboard the CH-47 Chinook helicopter that went down during high altitude mountainous environment training in Fort Bliss' northern training area near Orogrande, New Mexico which is about 45 miles away from the Texas base. There were three other soldiers with Burn and are reportedly listed in stable condition.


Their names and the extent of their injuries were not released. The CH-47 Chinook is a heavy-lift transport helicopter that was first used in Vietnam and today is used mainly to move troops, ammunition, large-caliber guns and equipment. The Brigade Burns was attached to and other units from across the military routinely train at Fort Bliss because of its vast desert and mountain terrain, according to the Military officials.

 

There is no news as to what led to the crash. Burn enlisted in the army in 2010 as a CH-47 helicopter repairer, the military said. He also served in Afghanistan from September 2011 to September 2012. His awards and decorations include six medals, two ribbons and an Army Aviation Badge. International press says he is survived by two daughters, 7-year-old Violetta and 4-year-old Vivian.
