This memorial was created in honor of Naval Aircrewman (Helicopter) 2nd Class Joseph P Fitzmorris of West Monroe, Louisiana.

The Department of Defense announced today the deaths of two sailors who died in a helicopter crash July 19 in Oman:

Senior Chief Aviation Warfare Systems Operator Sean P. Sullivan, 40, of St. Louis, Mo., and Naval Aircrewman (Helicopter) Second Class Joseph P. Fitzmorris, 31, of West Monroe, La., were declared deceased following an extensive search of the wreckage and the surrounding areas of the crash.

A MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter went down on July 19th about 60 miles southwest of Muscat, Oman, during heavy-lift operations. A separate MH-53E from the HM-15 squadron provided rescue assistance at the crash site and three of the five crew members were safely recovered. Further search and rescue efforts were called off on July 20th. The incident is under investigation.
