Biden, defense secretary attend memorial for 5 servicemen

Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of Defense Ash Carter are among officials attending a memorial for four Marines and a sailor who were killed in attacks at two military facilities in Chattanooga last month.
    
Those killed were Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Randall Smith and four Marines: Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, Sgt. Carson Holmquist, Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan and Lance Cpt. Squire "Skip" Wells, who just moments before had texted his girlfriend in Savannah the words "ACTIVE SHOOTER."
    
The July 16 rampage began when 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire on a military recruiting center before driving his rented Mustang about 7 miles across town to a reserve center, crashing through the gates and killing the servicemen. Abdulazeez died in a shootout with police.
