At least one Marine Corps member was killed Thursday and eight other service members remained missing early Friday after an amphibious assault vehicle “mishap” off the coast of Southern California, the I Marine Expeditionary Force confirmed Friday morning.
The Navy and Coast Guard are conducting a joint search-and-rescue operation for the missing service members who are all assigned to the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, headquartered at Camp Pendleton near San Diego.
