Statement regarding the death of a US Marine in the Northern Territory

I am deeply saddened by the death of a United States Marine who passed away on Tuesday from injuries he sustained in a vehicle accident at the Mount Bundey Training Area in the Northern Territory on 25 May 2019.

On behalf of the Australian Government, I wish to extend my condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of this Marine.

The Department of Defence is in close contact with Marine Corps leadership and is offering Australia’s full support at this difficult time.
