ONSLOW COUNTY — On April 18, a U.S. Marine died during a training accident near Camp Lejeune.

Assigned to Maritime Special Purpose Force 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, Sgt. Colin Arslanbas passed away just after 11 p.m. Arslanbas enlisted in 2020, was based at the Jacksonville, North Carolina, base and promoted to sergeant at the beginning of the month.

“Words cannot convey our sorrow for the tragic loss of one of our MEU family members,” Col. Todd Mahar, 24th MEU commanding officer, said in a press release. “The 24th MEU family mourns the loss of an outstanding Marine and leader. We offer our deepest condolences and unwavering support to his family during this most difficult time.”

Originally from Missouri, Arslanbas served as a Reconnaissance Marine and was awarded the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and National Defense Service Medal. 

The training accident is under investigation.
