1 soldier killed, 7 hurt at Fort Bragg
FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A training exercise involving demolitions killed one special forces soldier and injured seven others at the Army’s largest base Thursday, just a day after 15 Marines were hurt in a fire while training in California.
Lt. Col. Rob Bockholt, a spokesman for the U.S. Army’s Special Operations Command, said Staff Sgt. Alexander P. Dalida, 32, of Dunstable, Mass., was killed during the exercise. The cause of death is under investigation.
