The landing-accident took place at approximately 9:33 a.m. local time when troops were in the middle of a scheduled battalion training.
The Marines are currently being treated for injuries.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Marines and their families as they receive medical care," the statement added.
This is the latest in a string of accidents for the US military. Back in July the US Marine Corps canceled all flights for the KC-130T Hercules Transport planes after a crash killed one sailor and 15 Marines in Mississippi.
