CAMP PENDLETON (Tribune News Service) — As the three Southern California Marines among the nine who died in a recent training exercise are returned to their families this week, the Marines and sailors at Camp Pendleton honored the men lost when their seafaring vehicle sank off San Clemente Island.

In a somber ceremony on a flight line at Camp Horno, the service members were remembered for their devotion and service to their country. The eight Marines and one sailor died on July 30, when their amphibious assault vehicle sank in 400 feet of water during a shore to ship maneuver. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/ceremony-held-at-camp-pendleton-for-marines-sailor-who-died-when-their-seafaring-vehicle-sank-during-training-1.642472
