At the Fort Bragg military base in North Carolina, the bodies of two men were found.

Although the men were found at a training area, it is not believed that the deaths are related to the unit’s official training.

Military Criminal Investigation Command agents are investigating the incident.

“Due to the sensitive nature of the ongoing investigation and the pending notification of next of kin, no further information is available at this time,” officials said in a statement.

No further information has been provided so far.

Last month, a military paratrooper died in his barracks at Fort Bragg, near the town of Fayetteville.

Spc. Terrance Salazar, 24, was from Pleasanton, Texas, and was an infantryman attached to the 1st Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 2nd Battalion, arriving at Fort Bragg in October 2018.

The cause of death of the 24-year-old Spc. Terrance Salazar is still under investigation. The Army Times reported that there was no suspicion of foul play and his death is not to be linked to COVID-19.

Salazar was found in his room by other paratroopers who called the emergency services when they failed to respond. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

His awards and honors include the National Defense Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon and Army Parachutist Badge.

Fort Bragg is the largest U.S. Army base in terms of population and serves a population of 545,926 active soldiers, 13,493 reservists and students on temporary duty, 14,036 civilian employees, 6,054 contractors and 69,808 family members on active duty.

There are also more than 100,00 army pensioners and family members in the region.

More than 377,000 cases of COVID-19 have been registered in the state of North Carolina by the NC Department of Health and Human Services. To date, there have been 5,410 deaths in the state.

Most events at the Fort Bragg military facility have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In June, 90 students and cadres who had participated in the base’s Survival, Dodging, Resistance and Escape course were quarantined after a positive coronavirus test.

Colonel Michael Henry told ABC News that officials cancelled the course as soon as the first positive test result was discovered.
