A U.S. Marine from Dayton is among those killed in a helicopter crash Tuesday in California. Officials say the aircraft was on a training mission when it crashed.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the incident, but it seems likely that the crash may have been related to maintenance issues associated with inconsistent funding caused by lawmakers failing to pass defense budgets on a almost annual basis.

Although based in Miramar, the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing oversees units there and at Camp Pendleton, Twentynine Palms and Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma. "The 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing Communications Strategy and Operations Unit will provide more information about the incident as it becomes available". Taylor J. Conrad, Marine Corps officials said in a release.

On July 10, a KC-130T airplane crewed by members of the Newburgh, New York-based Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 452 crashed in rural MS en route to El Centro. "They each served honorably, wore the uniform proudly and were a ideal example of what makes our Marine Corps great". He joined the Marines in August 2013 and had been stationed at NAS Pensacola, NAS Corpus Christi and MCAS New River. "They will forever be in our hearts and minds".

The most recent occurred on October 10 near Futenma Marine Corps Air Station in Japan. He had also deployed to Japan as part of the United Deployment Program, and completed another deployment with the 15th MEU, according to the release.

The Marine Corps reported an AV-8B Harrier attack jet crashed just after takeoff from Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport, which includes the US military's Horn of Africa post known as Camp Lemonnier. The aircraft is the "Marine Corps' primary heavy lift helicopter and has been in service for over 30 years", the website states.

The latter two incidents were the latest in a string of US military aircraft mishaps on Okinawa, which hosts the bulk of USA military facilities in Japan.
