Seabee dies in Kuwait

Staff report

A Seabee supporting Operation Enduring Freedom died Tuesday in Kuwait, the Defense Department announced Thursday. His cause of death was not provided, but the Naval Safety Center Web site said an “E-6 died after a PT run.”

Information Systems Technician 1st Class (SCW) Sean L. Caughman, 43, of Fort Worth, Texas, was assigned to Fort Worth-based Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 22. He joined the Navy Reserve in April 2000 and had been with the battalion for the past year.

NMCB 22, the “Lone Star Battalion,” arrived in Kandahar, Afghanistan, on Sept. 8, 2009, and assumed the mission there one week later. The battalion’s tour was extended to seven months in January as part of the 30,000-troop surge.

More than 1,100 additional Seabees have deployed there since, increasing the Navy’s ground presence in the region by 29 percent.
