Manchin statement on 50th anniversary of the Marshall University football plane crash

Charleston, WV – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on the 50th anniversary of the Marshall University football team plane crash on November 14th, 1970.

“Fifty years ago, the devastating loss of 75 people, including members of the Marshall football team and Huntington community, shook our state and the entire nation to our core. The Marshall University community mourned the loss of their classmates, family and friends. And in the aftermath of this horrific loss, through the tremendous strength of West Virginians and the Thundering Herd family, hope rose from the ashes. The unyielding spirit of this community is a true testament to those we lost on that dreadful night and they will never be forgotten. Today, we all remember those who are not with us and honor their contributions to our great state and to Marshall University. Their memories live on as the Marshall community continues to thrive.”
