Hawaii-based solider who died during training identified

FORT HOOD, Texas (KHNL) - A Hawaii Army National Guard soldier who died during training in Fort Hood, Texas has been identified as Sergeant Julian Manglona.

Officials say the 39-year-old collapsed after completing a six-mile run Thursday.

Fellow soldiers tried to resuscitate him but he died upon arrival to the hospital.

The official cause of death is still unknown.

"Maj. Gen. Lee and I send our heartfelt condolences to Julian's family and to the Soldiers of the 29th IBCT and the 100th Battalion," said Brig. Gen. Alexander I. Kozlov, Commanding General of the 9th Mission Support Command.  "Losing a family member fellow is very difficult.  When Soldiers train and deploy together they too become like family.  Anytime we lose a Soldier we grieve.  We are grieving right now.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Julian's family and our Soldiers during this difficult time."

He was assigned to the 29th Infantry Brigade Combat Team based in Kalaeloa, which is training for combat duty in Fort Hood.
