The bodies of two Indiana Marines killed in Afghanistan have arrived back in the United States on their way back to their families.
The military didn’t immediately release details on the deaths of 22-year-old Cpl. Gregory Stultz of Brazil and 24-year-old Lance Cpl. Joshua Birchfield of LaPorte. Their bodies arrived Sunday at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.
Friends say Birchfield attended Westville and South Central high schools in northwestern Indiana before graduating in 2004. Stultz was a wrestler at Northview High School, advancing to the regionals as a senior in 2006.
A third Indiana Marine _ 27-year-old Sgt. Jeremy R. McQueary of Columbus _ was killed during combat in Afghanistan on Thursday. His body arrived at Dover on Saturday.
