The Marine Corps has fired the battalion commander whose unit lost nine service members when an assault amphibious vehicle sank during a July training accident off the Southern California coast.

Lt. Col. Michael J. Regner was relieved Tuesday from command of the Battalion Landing Team, 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, “due to a loss in trust and confidence in his ability to command,” said a Marine Corps statement issued late Tuesday. The training accident was the deadliest involving an assault amphibious vehicle in Marine Corps history, the service said.
