During a parade in their honor, wounded veterans and their families were driven through town on 2 flatbed trucks. Suddenly, as the trucks were traversing a railroad crossing, warning lights lit up and guard rails came down, trapping some of those on board. Special Forces veterans quickly jumped into action, pushing wives and others off the trucks, instructing them to jump. The train hit the truck at 60 mph and despite heroic efforts, 4 died. Tragic.
