Soldier killed in non-combat incident in Kuwait
Rest in peace, soldier.
One U.S. soldier died in a non-combat related vehicle accident in Kuwait on Monday, the Army announced.
According to a release from U.S. Army Central Command, two other soldiers were also injured in the accident.
Military.com reported that their injuries “did not appear life-threatening.”
The name of the soldier who was killed is being withheld until next-of-kin notification.
The accident, which occurred in a “non-tactical vehicle,” is currently under investigation.
A 2018 study found that one-third of U.S. service member injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan resulted from non-combat related incidents.
