Braica had served in the Marine Corps for more than eight years and had deployed twice to what is now referred to as the Indo-Pacific Command region. He first deployed with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit in 2011 and later with the 1st Marine Raider Battalion from July 2017 to January 2018, according to the Marines. Braica served as an intelligence specialist with 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, and with Marine Aircraft Group 36, and had received several honors since he enlisted in July 2010.

Braica's identity was announced Tuesday after his relatives were notified. He is survived by his wife and son. An investigation into the accident continues.

"Our thoughts are with his family and teammates," Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command tweeted on Monday.

Last week, three Marines were killed by a bomb blast outside of Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan. They were identified as Cpl. Robert A. Hendriks, Sgt. Benjamin S. Hines, and Staff Sgt. Christopher K.A. Slutman.
