Army Special Forces candidate dies after being found unresponsive in his room

An Army Special Forces candidate has died after he was found unresponsive in his Fort Bragg barracks room on Monday.

Pvt. Jamie Wyatt Boger was assigned to the Special Warfare Medical Group in October last year for medical rehabilitation of a training injury, per the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School press release. 

Boger enlisted in the Army in March 2019 on an 18X contract, which gives recruits the chance to join the Green Berets after completing basic, infantry, and airborne training. 

Boger finished infantry training at 2nd Battalion, 58th Infantry Regiment, Fort Benning, Georgia.

In August 2019, he reported to Fort Bragg with Charlie Company, 4th Battalion, 1st Special Warfare Training Group (Airborne) to start the Special Forces Qualification Course.

The cause of death is unknown and under investigation by the Fort Bragg Criminal Investigation Division.
