The soldiers' names have not been released as next of kin have not yet been notified. No other casualties were reported.

The two soldiers were members of the 101st Airborne Division's 101st Combat Aviation Brigade.

Acting senior commander, Todd Royner, issued a statement calling the tragedy a day of sadness for the 101st airborne. Two soldiers have been killed in the crash, which occurred during routine training and is now under investigation.

Just before 10 p.m., according to a 101st Airborne Division spokesperson, an Apache attack helicopter went down in the darkness on the sprawling Army post.

The crash is the latest in a series of similar incidents involving US military aircraft that began on Tuesday.
