JBER Tragedy is a Reminder For us All

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA — On May 12, a soldier at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER) died of injuries sustained in a bear attack on May 10 while working in a JBER training area. Staff Sgt. Seth Michael Plant, 30, an infantryman from the 3rd Battalion, 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment was a dedicated servicemember who lost his life in an untimely tragedy.
