Also killed was Gunnery Sgt. Thomas J. Sullivan of Hampden, Massachusetts.

WITN reported that Holmquist, Wyatt and Sullivan had all served at Camp Lejeune.

Also killed was Lance Cpl. Squire K. Wells of Cobb County, Georgia, who a family spokesman says went by “Skip.”

Their deaths shocked family and friends, who soon posted on Facebook to console their families.

“We are all sorry for your loss. All of us are thinking of you all and praying,” a friend posted on the Facebook page of Wyatt’s wife.
