RIP Brother, Vaya con Dios.
My deepest condolences to family and friends.

May the fuckers responsible rot in hell.

Probably alcohol related.

Rest in peace and thank you for your service.

Same MARSOC unit?

RIP brother.

MARSOC again, is it the same unit that the other 2 Marines are assigned to that are implicated in the other Special Forces murder.

So who is responsible for the Col Kurtz command climate being permitted in that Command?

Rest In Peace, Warrior!

After the investigation, if found guilty of murder, they need to be prosecuted as harshly as possible.
