Pendleton, Okinawa Marines die in Afghanistan

Marine Corps Times staff report

Two Marines were killed Sunday in Afghanistan, according to the Defense Department.

Cpl. Jon-Luke Bateman and Lance Cpl. Kenneth E. Cochran died in combat in Helmand province, Pentagon officials said in a news release issued Tuesday. It&rsquos not immediately clear if their deaths are related.

Bateman, 22, of Tulsa, Okla., was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, out of Camp Pendleton, Calif. An infantryman, he was on his first combat deployment.

Cochran, 20, of Wilder, Idaho, was assigned to 9th Engineer Support Battalion, 3rd Marine Logistics Group, out of Okinawa, Japan. He was a water support technician.

Marines with 2/4 have been operating in the southern part of Musa Qala, according Lt. Col. Bill Vivian, the battalion&rsquos commander, who posted a message Saturday on the unit&rsquos Facebook page.

Earlier this month they launched Operation Double Check, aimed at booting Taliban fighters from the area, which he referred to as &ldquocontested terrain.&rdquo

The enemy, he said in his message, &ldquodoesn&rsquot want to let it go.&rdquo

Vivian said 2/4 is scheduled to be replaced in March by Camp Pendleton&rsquos 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines. Ninth ESB has been in theater only since late-November.

Died: January 15, 2012
