Tech. Sgt. Don Sardin was found on Tuesday, according to Stars and Stripes.
Sardin was assigned to the 1st Special Operations Squadron, 353rd Special Operations Group. The squadron operates the MC-130 Combat Talon II aircraft.
The cause of death hasn’t been determined, but Stars and Stripes reported that foul play isn’t suspected.
“It is never easy to say goodbye to a fellow Air Commando,” Col. Kenneth McAdams, the group’s deputy commander, said in a statement. “We will all miss Don dearly. He dedicated his life to the service of his nation.”
The incident is under investigation.
