PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Capt. Samuel A. Schultz, of Huntingdon Valley, was laid to rest on Sunday.
The 28-year-old was one of four Marines killed when their helicopter crashed on a training mission in the California desert on Tuesday.
Alongside Capt. Shultz, the other deceased Marines were identified on Thursday as 27-year-old 1st Lt. Samuel Phillips of Pinehurst, North Carolina; 33-year-old Gunnery Sgt. Richard Holley of Dayton, Ohio; and 24-year-old Lance Cpl. Taylor Conrad of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
A GoFundMe fundraiser in Capt. Shultz’s honor, started by one of his best friends, has nearly reached its goal of $50,000.
The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.
