Another Marine with the Regimental Combat Team 7 died Oct. 1 in fighting in the same area. That brings the total to five US Marines who died in Anbar over the weekend, four battle deaths and one from a non-combat related vehicle accident. The Marines' names are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
