Soldier Found Dead at Base in Kuwait, Army Says

The Army was investigating what caused the death of a soldier at a base in Kuwait this week.

The soldier, who has not yet been publicly identified, was found unresponsive Wednesday at Camp Arifjan, the Army said.

“We send our heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased,” U.S. Army Central said in an emailed statement Thursday.

The soldier’s name was being withheld until 24 hours after family had been notified, it said.

It’s the second soldier’s death in Kuwait this year, coming a little over a week after Staff Sgt. Anthony Bermudez, 28, was killed in a vehicle accident near Camp Buehring.
