Lt. Steve Zilberman RIP
I saw this story and was moved. Lt. Zilberman, a US Navy Hawkeye pilot lost an engine while returning from a mission. He fought the controls long enough to let his three crewmates bail out, but did not survive his water landing. He leaves behind a young wife and two young children.
Also, there is a fund you can donate to for his kid's college education. See the VAW/VRC Memorial Scholarship Fund here.
