On July 10th, 2017...

Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Ryan Lohrey was conducting a training operation as part of Marine Special Operations Team (MSOT) 8231.  Their mission that day was to conduct an airlift from Cherry Point, NC to Arizona where they would conduct pre-deployment training.  While en route the KC-130 they were flying in broke apart in mid-air and crashed in Leflore County Mississippi.

 
 The Lohrey Family’s loss hit Indianana hard, as he was a well respected member of the community. He graduated from Shenandoah High School in 2005 and joined the Navy in November 2007. While serving his country, Ryan met Cassie Coaster from Swartz Creek, Michigan and they were married on June 3rd, 2017; just a few short weeks before the accident.

 This July, Brothers In Arms Foundation will conduct an event to honor Ryan.  Fellow MSOT members, family, and friends of Ryan will be participating in a 900 mile hike called the Marine Raider Memorial March.  This march will begin at the crash site in Mississippi, and will finish at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.  This 900 mile ruck will take just under two weeks to complete and will signify bringing their brothers home to rest.

 In order to conduct this 900 mile ruck march in honor of Ryan, we need support from his friends, family and the Indiana community.  We need to raise $25,700 by June 10th.  The funds donated to Brothers In Arms Foundation are 100% tax-deductible. Brothers In Arms Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that directly supports the Marine Special Operations Community.  The funds will be used for flights, lodging, transportation, rental cars, meals and medical supplies.  The Marine Raider Memorial March is a grueling event with a large logistical train, and we can’t do this without your support!
