A soldier was killed, and another injured, after a Humvee roll-over on Friday in Alaska's Yukon Training Area, the Army announced on Monday.

  • 25-year-old Spc. Marquise Gabriel Elliot — from Charlotte, North Carolina and serving with B Battery, 2nd Battalion, 377th Parachute Field Artillery Regiment — was treated at the scene for injuries, and pronounced dead after being transported to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.
  • The other soldier sustained injuries to his lower extremities but has since returned to duty.
  • "Spc. Elliott was a gifted and intelligent paratrooper," 2-377th PFAR's commander, Lt. Col. Tobias Bennett, said in the Army's press release. "His reserved and thoughtful demeanor, disciplined work ethic, and commitment to his fellow paratroopers endeared him to all fortunate enough to share time with him."
  • Elliot previously deployed to Afghanistan with the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division from September 2017 to May 2018. He was awarded the Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, and more.
