Services Set For Three MN National Guard Soldiers


UNDATED (AP) — Services are set for three Minnesota National Guardsmen killed in the crash of a Black Hawk helicopter last week.

Chief Warrant Officers James Rogers Jr. and Charles Nord and Sgt. Kort Plantenberg were killed Thursday when their helicopter crashed southwest of St. Cloud during a routine maintenance test flight.

Services for Plantenberg will be held Thursday at St. John’s Abbey Church in Collegeville. Rogers will be remembered Sunday at Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School. Nord’s funeral will be held Monday at Perham High School.

The three soldiers returned in May from a nine-month deployment to the Middle East.
