Buffalo Soldier Dies in Noncombat Incident

By Howard Reidel

Buffalo, NY – A soldier from Buffalo has died in Iraq in what the Department of Defense calls a noncombat incident.

24 year old Army Sergeant Daniel Beard collapsed late last week after completing a run of a couple of miles. Beard had been assigned to the 147th Postal Company in Germany.

The family tells the Buffalo News that Beard had been stationed in Iraq for the past eight months. Results of an autopsy are pending.
