PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Two Navy sailors, one from Panama City, died of non-combat injuries in Bahrain, military officials announced Oct. 23.

Seaman Anamarie Sannicolas Camacho, 20, and Seaman Genesia Mattril Gresham, 19, of Lithonia, Ga., died Oct. 22, according to a statement from the Defense Department. The sailors’ deaths were under investigation.

Both women held the master-at-arms rating and were assigned to Naval Support Activity Bahrain.

Bahrain, a tiny island nation on the Persian Gulf, is a U.S. ally and home to the Navy’s 5th Fleet, which is responsible for an area of about 2.5 million square miles of water including the Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea, Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman and parts of the Indian Ocean.

About 3,600 personnel work on the Naval Support Activity Bahrain base, located just outside Bahrain’s capital, Manama. The base supports U.S. naval ships in the region.
