A 31-year old Marine captain from Basking Ridge was among 11 people killed in a Black Hawk helicopter crash last week.
Seven marines and four soldiers from the Louisiana National Guard were killed in the accident.
An Associated Press story on WPIX reports that Capt. Stanford Henry Shaw III graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 2006, and served two tours in Iraq in 2007 and 2009. Shaw has been decorated with numerous medals, including the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal and Achievement Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, Navy Meritorious Unit Commendation, National Defense Service Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Sea Service Deployment ribbon with two stars.
