Rep. Banks’ Statement on Tragic Death of Capt. Matthew Tomkiewicz and 3 Marines

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Rep. Jim Banks (IN-03) released the following statement:

“Capt. Matthew Tomkiewicz of Fort Wayne was one of four Marines who passed away following an accident during a NATO training exercise in Norway. My office is in contact with the Marine Corps regarding their ongoing investigation and forthcoming reports.

Capt. Tomkiewicz devoted seven years of his life to protecting our country, earning the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, before he paid the ultimate sacrifice last Friday. Northeast Indiana will always remember his patriotism and his willingness to put his life on the line for others. He represents the best of our state and our nation.

Please join me in praying for the Tomkiewicz family, and please respect the family’s privacy during this incredibly trying time.”
