A U.S. Army soldier was found dead in his living quarters on Monday at Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait, U.S. Army Central (ARCENT) told American Military News in a statement on Tuesday.
The cause of death is not yet known, but ARCENT said the incident is “not combat related.”
The soldier was supporting U.S. Central Command operations.
“We send our heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased,” the ARCENT statement said.
An investigation is underway and the soldier’s name is withheld until next of kin notification is complete.
Ali Al Salem Air Base is used to transfer cargo used by the U.S. military in the Middle East, including weapons systems.
In January, two soldiers died in Kuwait also in non-combat incidents.
On Jan. 20, 34-year-old Staff Sgt. Timothy Luke Manchester died in a non-combat incident at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait.
On Jan. 11, 28-year-old Staff Sgt. Anthony Bermudez died in a non-combat vehicle accident near Camp Buehring.
Earlier this month, a new accident report found that the Sept. 14, 2020 death of Air Force Staff Sgt. Ronald J. Ouellette occurred when the all-terrain vehicle he was riding in rolled over and pinned him beneath.
