So where is all the screaming like you people like to do when a small plane crashes. Oh I get it, because it is a "military aircraft" it is different.

A pilot's life is a pilot's life, whether it be military or not, they both deserve to be respected and not feared.

My friend's son, A.J. Prezioso was the Marine from Lake Worth who lost his life training to defend all of us. My heart goes out to his Mom, Fran and his sister, Tara and their family. To A.J., we will always keep you in our hearts, we will always miss you and thank you for pursuing a goal to protect us all.

A.J. was a great kid! Although seeing him very sparatically over the last few years since graduation, anytime you saw him he was so upbeat and brightened your mood. He will be so deeply missed. My condolences also go out to Maj. David Yaggy's family, friends and comrades. These guys were training to defend our freedom and I respect them greatly!! RIP

It was a terrible tragedy what happened to AJ and although I haven't seen him recently it is still painful that such a great guy has been taken from us. My condolences to his family and friends. His dedication to our country and our freedom deserves all the respect in the world!

Our cousin, A.J., was taken from us far too soon. We will always remember the last time he, his Grandfather Joe and his Mom, Francine, were at our house for dinner. A.J. spoke about his passion and dream on becoming a pilot. He loved to fly and tragically died doing what he loved to do. We were very impressed with A.J. and joked with him during dinner that one day when he becomes a commercial pilot for a big name airline that we wanted free around trip tickets. Our hearts go out to A.J.'s Mom, Francine, and A.J.'s sister, Tara, and the entire Prezioso and LoConte Families. Our hearts also go out to Yaggy Family on their tragic loss. A.J. - you see it all and know it all now....Please watch over us. God Bless. We love you.

I remember talking to AJ on vacation in North Carolina in August of 06 right before he went into the Marines. He was so pumped about what he was about to do. He showed us videos of him flying and you could see how much he loved it. And im greatful that My friends and I got to spend such a great time with him New Years Eve. You will never be forgotten AJ

Until we meet again
RIP

you know, insteading of attacking people about what you think their saying you should keep your opinions to yourself. This isn't about military planes, its about two men dying doing something they loved and being part of the military. Find something better to do that cry like a girl about it.

Tara, thank you for sharing your brother's life with me this evening. It was wonderful to hear so many fun stories told from friends, family and former strangers, about him, and his love for you.
