Texas National Guard Suffers A Fatal Helicopter Crash

The small rural town of La Grulla was shaken this week after a UH-72 Lakota National Guard helicopter fell out of the sky resulting in the loss of two federal National Guard soldiers and one Border Patrol agent, confirmed by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

This squad was not deployed by the state of Texas or working under Operation Lone Star, Texas’ branch of border enforcement utilizing the National Guard. Instead, according to recent reports, two of the three who tragically died were “soldiers” and yet another soldier was injured, with the other fatality being a member of the U.S. Border Patrol.


La Grulla is just a few miles south of the Rio Grande River, a hotspot for the dangerous invasion at the U.S. southern border. This particular aircraft was assigned to the border support mission, in which thousands of illegal immigrants are crossing from South America every single day.

The Texas National Guard has taken costly measures regarding military forces and aircraft as Texas becomes more and more flooded with illegal aliens.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has recently taken his own measures to secure the border under the Biden administration’s open-borders policies despite attempted — and unsuccessful — interference by the federal government.

Texas Department of Public Safety South Texas Regional Director Victor Escalon issued a statement confirming that at least four members of the aircraft “may be critically injured” but could not confirm the identities of the victims or the cause of the accident.

The investigation of the cause of the crash is still ongoing with no statement from any public officials.
