Spc. Nick Bravo-Regules, 20, from Largo, Florida, died Tuesday in Jordan from a non-combat-related incident.
The soldier was a member of 2nd Battalion, 43rd Air Defense Artillery Regiment. Coronavirus is not considered a factor in the death, an Army official said. However, the official did not know whether foul play was suspected.
This was Regules’ first deployment. He joined the Army in May 2017 as a nodal network systems operator and was assigned a battery at Fort Bliss in March 2018, according to the Army. His job was to maintain both tactical and strategic communications networks for his unit.
The 43rd Air Defense Artillery Regiment is based out of Fort Bliss, Texas. The unit’s 2nd Battalion operates Patriot missile batteries, an air defense system that’s in high demand in the Middle East.
A picture posted by the Fort Bliss unit shows the battalion “casing its colors” during a ceremony prior to deployment in January. It was not immediately clear where in Jordan the unit was assigned.
Maj. Fred Hair, a spokesman for U.S. Army Central, did not immediately return a request by Army Times seeking Regules’ service history and official picture.
