Two soldiers died this week during separate training exercises at two of the U.S. Army’s largest bases. On Thursday, a special operations soldier died during a demolitions training exercise that injured seven others at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Officials confirmed the men were at a range on the base but did not specify how the accident happened. Initial reports mentioned an explosion, but officials would not confirm that or provide information on the condition of those injured. On Tuesday, a soldier at Fort Hood in Texas died during hoist training for medical helicopter evacuations.
