“Both Marines are currently being treated for severe burns at the UC-San Diego Regional Burn Center.  Our thoughts and prayers are with them,” the base said in a statement.

The leathernecks are from Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 112.

That’s a Marine Corps reserve unit based out of Fort Worth, Texas.
