(CNN)Two of those charged in the alleged domestic terrorism plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer are former Marines, the Corps said.
Military records also confirm that Joseph Morrison and Daniel Harris served in the Corps.
Morrison, 26, continued to serve with the reserve forces until last week, the Marines said. His exit from the reserves is unrelated to the events in Michigan, they said.
“We are aware of the circumstances surrounding the two individuals and will assist the investigating authorities in any way we can,” a Marine Corps statement said. “The serious allegations are not a reflection of the Marine Corps, do not reflect the oath every Marine takes to support and defend the constitution, and do not align with our core values of honor, courage, and commitment.”
