Camp Pendleton-Based Marine Dies fighting In Afghanistan

The Pentagon released the name today of a 23-year-old Camp Pendleton-based Marine killed in combat last week in Afghanistan.

Cpl. Max W. Donahue of Highlands Ranch, Colo., died Saturday from wounds he had suffered in Helmand Province three days earlier, according to the Department of Defense.

He was a member of I Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger ordered that flags at the state Capitol be lowered to half-staff in honor of "a courageous and strong Marine."

"The loyalty he displayed in defending our nation's freedoms is an inspiration to us all, and his service and sacrifice will be remembered forever," the governor said.
