The incoming commander for the Marine Corps’ Logistics Operations School in North Carolina died early Friday while taking the Physical Fitness Test.
Lt. Col. Andrew P. Reed, 39, collapsed and died aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune during the 3-mile running portion of the test. The cause of death remains under investigation, according to a Marine press release.
The last, full measure of devotion doesn’t always occur during combat. Condolences to the family and friends of Lt. Col. Reed.
