USAF investigating death of Airman away on training duty


A US Air Force Security Forces Airman’s death is under investigation at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, and authorities at the Texas-based installation do not believe Coronavirus was a factor.

Tech. Sgt. Nicholas A. Vogler, who was assigned to the New York-based 914th Security Forces Squadron, died while attending a month-long instructor’s course in Texas.

Vogler had been in the service for almost ten years and had deployed twice.

“This is incredibly difficult for the 914th Air Refuelling Wing family as we mourn the death of one of our own,” said wing commander Col. Mark Larson in a statement. “Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Tech. Sgt. Vogler.”

According to the Air Force Times, Vogler’s death was withheld from public release pending notification of his family, and the USAF placed great emphasis on the notion that Vogler did not present with any Coronavirus symptoms.

Vogler’s home base is the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station in New York. He was 28 years old at the time of his death.
