Lance Cpl. Jamen Miller is a Marine Corps Body Bearer. He has laid to rest nearly 200 Marines. Body Bearers go through rigorous physical training and ceremonial drill practice to perfect their movements for the funerals of fallen Marines.

*Correction
Other service details also operate as a six-man team, as well as eight-man teams during funerals. The Marine Body Bearers only ever carry out their duties as a six-man team.

The Department of Defense announced two separate U.S. Navy civilian deaths in Juffir, Bahrain – both which are being called non-combat related. 22-year-old Marcus D. Prince of Norfolk, Virginia died April 26. Prince was assigned to USNS Pecos (T-AO 197), and was supporting military operations against ISIS in Operation Inherent Resolve. In a separate release, it was announced that 60-year-old Michael M. Baptiste of Brooklyn, New York died April 28. He was also supporting Operation Inherent Resolve and was assigned to Forward Deployed Regional Maintenance Center Detachment Bahrain at Naval Support Activity Bahrain. Other than being non-combat related, the DoD has not yet released any other details on either death.
