Marine Corps Identifies Recruit Who Died at Parris Island

Report published March 20, 2016 @ http://www.military.com/...

Officials have identified the recruit who died Friday at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina.

Raheel Siddiqui, of Taylor, Michigan, was pronounced dead on March 18, Parris Island spokeman Capt. Gregory Carroll said. He had arrived at the location on March 7 and was subsequently assigned to Recruit Training Regiment.

The circumstances of Siddiqui's death weren't released. The incident remains under investigation by Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which is working with military authorities at Parris Island, Carroll said.

"Our most sincere and deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of Siddiqui," he said. "The Marine Corps is in contact with the family to ensure they receive our support."

About 17,000 Marine recruits come to Parris Island every year for the legendarily difficult Marine Corps boot camp.

Other than he was 20 years old, no. I just found out about this today.

I'm in Ohio for the next several days. I'll see if I can get more info in the meantime.

Strange.

More recently, another recruit died after a physical fitness test in 2006 and a drill instructor was found dead in 2014.

USMC training and physical requirements are extremely rigorous. It can take a toll on someone who isn't ready for it. That said, it's interesting that NCIS is involved in the investigation.
