A Camp Pendleton Marine has been killed in combat in Afghanistan.

Military officials said Staff Sgt. Aaron Taylor, of Bovey, Minn., died Friday in Helmand Province when he exited a vehicle and stepped on a roadside bomb.

His family said he will be buried in his home state of Minnesota on Saturday. His brother described Taylor as "the kind of guy who wanted to make a difference." 

The 27-year-old had been in the country for less than two months. He served a tour of duty in Iraq last year.
