Soldier dies at Fort Bragg

Investigators are looking into the death of an 82nd Airborne Division soldier Sunday at Fort Bragg, officials announced Monday.

Pfc. Luke J. Brown, 27, of Fredericksburg, Va., was an intelligence analyst with the division’s Headquarters and Headquarters Company. He had been assigned to the division since January.

“Private First Class Brown was a paratrooper with an upbeat personality who was happy-go-lucky and always tried to make people laugh,” said Capt. Eric von Fischer-Benzon, Brown’s company commander.

“Although Brown was only in the company a short time, he was admired by his peers and he will be greatly missed.”

Brown joined the Army in January 2007. After completing initial training and airborne school, he was assigned to Fort Bragg.

Brown is survived by his parents, Bradley and Lucy Brown of Fredericksburg.

RIP :(
Sketchy details, or hardly none at all. Foul play ? Drugs ? Congenital heart problem ?

Rest easy PFC Brown and thank you for service.
