Two families in northern Virginia are mourning the loss of two Marines killed in a helicopter crash.

Maj. Thomas Budrejko, 27, and Capt. Michael Quinn, 28, both graduated from the Naval Academy and went on to become pilots.

They were two of seven Marines killed in a helicopter crash Wednesday in Yuma, Az. while training for a deployment to Afghanistan.

Maj. Budrejko leaves behind a wife and son. His parents, who live in Reston, Va., said Budrejko was proud to serve his country. He will be laid to rest at a family plot in Connecticut.

Capt. Quinn graduated from Loudoun Valley High School in Purcellville, Va. and had just gotten engaged last month. His funeral will take place at Arlington Cemetery.
