LOGANSPORT, Ind. (AP) — A Marine from northern Indiana was among 13 U.S. military members killed in the suicide bombing at Afghanistan’s Kabul airport.

The death of 22-year-old Marine Corps Cpl. Humberto Sanchez of Logansport, Indiana, was confirmed Saturday by the Department of Defense.

Logansport High School’s principal said Sanchez was among 17 members of his 2017 graduating class who joined the military.

Jones said Sanchez was “honored to be putting on the Marine uniform and serving his country.”
