A soldier with the Army’s 7th Special Forces Group died in a training accident in California last week.
Spc. Nicholas Jividen, 21, died at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin on the afternoon of Nov. 6 in an unspecified training accident. The incident is currently under investigation, according to a 7th Group press statement.
Jividen was assigned to Headquarters and Support Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group as a signals intelligence analyst.
“It was an honor having him serve within the ranks of 7th [Group],” Col. Patrick Colloton, the group commander, said in a statement. “He was a part of our family, and will not be forgotten.”
