I'm going to keep this simple because I don't know much of the details. My company was on a rifle range today zeroing in our rifles when our range got shut down for what's called a 'safety stand down'. All that we know is that a battalion that is currently going through Mojave Viper, what I just did in October, had a Marine die today during a live fire exercise on the Deliberate Assault Course. I have never met him and I don't even know what unit he was from, but it hits home none the less. I pray for his team, his squad, his platoon and most importantly for his family. May he rest in peace.
