A paratrooper with the Army’s 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division (Airborne) was hurt during an exercise Aug. 16 on the base.

A spokesman for U.S. Army Alaska said the paratrooper — who was not identified — suffered “serious, but not life-threatening” injuries.

“The paratrooper received immediate medical attention and was transported to Providence for further treatment,” wrote USARAK spokesman John Pennell.

Pennell said the incident is under investigation and that the Army would have no further comment until an investigation is completed.
