A Marine died last month after physical training but the Marine Corps did not make it public.
Pfc. Ethan M. Moores’s death was listed on a recent mishap report from the Naval Safety Center, which according to Military.com, tracks Navy and Marine Corps deaths and major accidents.
He was assigned to 1st Battalion, 8th Marines, was pronounced dead at Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune on May 27.
When Military.com attempted to obtain details surrounding the Marine’s death, which was not made public by the Marine Corps, the 2nd Marine Division and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service declined to answer questions.
A spokesperson for the 2nd Marine Division did say there was no heat advisory on the day Moores died.
He said EMS administered lifesaving aid before transporting Moores to the naval medical center.
“At a young age, he desired to become a Marine and signed up for the delayed entry program,” his obituary states.
“Following his graduation from Shead High School class of 2019, he fulfilled that dream and joined the U.S Marine Corps. He also enjoyed mudding, 4-wheeling, and target shooting.”
His death remains under investigation.
