A Defense Department statement issued Saturday says 22-year-old Cpl. Joseph D. Logan of Willis, Texas, was one of six Marines who died Thursday in the southern Afghan province of Helmand.

The statement provides no details on the incident and does not explain how Logan or the others died. A spokesperson at the Marine Corps Base in Hawaii could not immediately be reached.

All were assigned to Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 363, Marine Aircraft Group 24, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force, Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.
