Region 8 Family Welcomes Home Marine Son As They Mourn For Their 2nd Marine Son

A Marine from Wynne Arkansas is coming home from Iraq, but it's not a happy occasion for his family.

Patrick Hopper is on his way back from that war-torn country because his brother, 21 year old Lance Corporal Brian Hopper, also a Marine, was killed in the crash of a helicopter in Western Iraq.

Members of the Hopper family say Brian's death is a complete turnaround, since they expected him to leave the country next week and return to the U.S.

Brian was among 31 people killed in the Wednesday crash.
