CARMEL, Ind. -- The remains of a Carmel native who was killed in Iraq were returned to the United States early Monday morning.
Vice President and former Indiana Governor Mike Pence attended the dignified transfer ceremony for Capt. Christopher "Tripp" Zanetis and Master Sgt. Christopher Raguso at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.
Zanetis, 37, was one of seven U.S. airmen killed when their helicopter went down after hitting a power line in Iraq. The Pentagon says the helicopter crash does not appear to be the result of enemy activity and is under investigation.
