A marine and all-around-amazing young man was tragically killed last week in a training exercise in Twentynine Palms, California, according to sources. His family is grieving the loss of their soldier, who by all accounts was an incredible young man.
LCpl. Austin Ruiz, 19, died and another Marine was injured while training aboard the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twentynine Palms, California, says Brigadier General William F. Mullen III. The incident is still under investigation.
