The Pentagon released the name Monday of a 34-year-old Camp Pendleton-based Marine whose battle death last week made her the first female USMC officer killed in combat in Iraq.

Maj. Megan McClung of Coupeville, Wash., died Wednesday in Al Anbar Province, where she was serving as a public affairs officer with I Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters, according to the Department of Defense.

McClung was raised in Orange County, Calif.

McClung enlisted in the Marine Corps in May 1995, following her graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy. She deployed to Iraq in January.

Her personal awards include a Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, National Defense Service Medal and Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
