The U.S. Army says a 49-year-old brigadier general has died in Afghanistan.
A statement posted on the Fort Hood website says Brig. Gen. Terence Hildner died Friday in Kabul of apparent natural causes.
Hildner has commanded the 13th Expeditionary Sustainment Command at Fort Hood since August 2010. The Army says he left for Afghanistan in December to support the NATO mission there.
He served in Iraq during both Operation Desert Storm and the 2003 U.S.-led war. He also served in Kuwait and was part of the last U.S. patrol along the East-West German border before its reunification.
Hildner was born in New Haven, Conn., and listed Fairfax, Va., as his official home. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1984.
