Joint Base Lewis-McChord plans to host a memorial next week for the four Army aviators who were killed in a helicopter accident Monday.

The memorial will be open to family, friends, soldiers in 16th Combat Aviation Brigade and invited guests, Lewis-McChord spokesman Joe Piek said.

It is scheduled to take place at 2 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 19 in the Lewis-North chapel inside the base.

On Thursday, a crash investigation team from Fort Rucker, Ala. continued its work looking into what caused the accident that killed Capt. Anne Rockeman Montgomery, Chief Warrant Officer Frank Buoniconti, Chief Warrant Officer Shan Joseph Satterfield and Chief Warrant Officer Lucas Daniel Sigfrid.
