A sailor has died of a non-combat injury while aboard the USS Wasp in the central Mediterranean Sea, the Department of Defense announced Thursday.
Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Fuels) Airman Devon M. Faulkner, 24, of North Carolina, died Sept. 20.
No details of Faulkner's death were released. The incident remains under investigation.
More than 4,000 Sailors and Marines serve in the Wasp Amphibious Ready Group which deployed to the Mediterranean from Norfolk back in June.
