What's the purpose of identifying 3 of the troops were Marines? Are they somehow more deserving of mourning than the other 3, whatever their branches of service?
Marines are not soldiers. It’s a Marine thing. My brother was a soldier who died in Nam. It has nothing to do with not honoring their deaths. Not acknowledging their loss is disrespectful.
The DOD has not released the information on them yet. They could all be Marines, and then the media will be able to use the correct title.
