BATON ROUGE (AP) - Family and friends say one of four Marines killed when their helicopter crashed on a training mission in Southern California was a standout in the corps and in life, just as caring as he was tough.
  
Family and friends identified Lance Cpl. Taylor Conrad as one of the four killed in the Tuesday crash.
  
Tributes to Conrad, who just became a father, are pouring in on social media, including from the mayor in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and his high school football team.
  
Cpl. Brock Portier, a good friend and fellow Marine, says his "brother" was "the gold standard" in the corps.
  
Conrad's great aunt, Pam Scoggin of Texas City, Texas, says he loved serving his country.
