Three North Carolina-based Marines were killed in Afghanistan on Friday, the Defense Department announced.

Staff Sgt. David H. Stewart, Lance Cpl. Brandon J. Garabrant and Lance Cpl. Adam R. Wolff died “as a result of a hostile incident while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan,” according to a Marine Corps news release.

Stewart, 34, was a platoon sergeant from Stafford, Virginia, who joined the Marine Corps in June 2004. This was Stewart’s second deployment to Afghanistan; he also deployed to Iraq three times.

Garabrant, 19, was a combat engineer from Peterborough, New Hampshire, who joined the Marine Corps in March 2013. This was Garabrant’s first deployment.

Wolff, 25, was also a combat engineer from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who joined the Marine Corps in December 2012. This was Wolff’s first deployment.

The three Marines were assigned to 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion (Forward), based out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Garabrant and Wolff deployed to Afghanistan in March. Stewart deployed in April.
