A Dover man was among five Marines who died in a helicopter crash earlier this week in California.
Jack Casey, 26, enlisted in the Marine Corp in May 2019 and was promoted to captain in September.
"Capt. Jack Casey gave his life while serving his country," New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said in a statement today. "Valerie and I are deeply saddened as we mourn the loss of these five Marines. Capt. Jack Casey's death is a profound loss for his family, his community, New Hampshire, and the country. I have directed all flags on all public buildings and grounds in the State of New Hampshire to fly at half-staff on the day of interment."
The other Marines who died were identified Friday as: Lance Cpl. Donovan Davis, 21, of Olathe, Kansas, a CH-53E helicopter crew chief; Sgt. Alec Langen, 23, of Chandler, Arizona, a CH-53E helicopter crew chief;
Capt. Benjamin Moulton, 27, of Emmett, Idaho, a CH-53E helicopter pilot; and Capt. Miguel Nava, 28, of Traverse City, Mich., a CH-53E helicopter pilot.
The crash occurred on Tuesday while the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar-based crew was in training during an intense storm in Southern California.

The wreckage was located in Pine Valley Wednesday morning, according to military officials.
