Spc. Michael T. Osorio of the U.S. Army died in Taji, Iraq, on Tuesday.

The Department of Defense announced Wednesday that Osorio died in a noncombat related incident and that the circumstances surrounding his death are under investigation. Osorio, 20, was an intelligence analyst supporting Operation Inherent Resolve, the global coalition effort to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

This was Osorio’s first overseas deployment. The soldier, who joined the Army in 2017, had been in Iraq since Feb. 23.

Osorio was from Horseshoe Bend, Idaho, and was assigned to the 4th Squadron, 10th Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Armored Brigade Team, 4th Infantry Division based out of Fort Carson, Colo.

He had received the Army Achievement Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.

"The 3rd Armored Brigade would like to extend its deepest condolences to the friends, family, and fellow Soldiers of Spc. Michael Osorio. Spc. Osorio’s dedication to the mission and his unit, made him a valued member of the Iron Brigade. His loss will be felt throughout our formations,” said Col. Michael J. Simmering, the commander of the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.

Col. Simmering added: “We ask that everyone keep the Osorio family in their hearts and prayers as they deal with the tragic loss of their Soldier.”

This is the second noncombat related death in Iraq in the past week. Spc. Ryan Riley, 22, of the 101st Airborne, died in Ninawa Province on Saturday. Based out of Fort Campbell in Kentucky, Riley was on his first deployment to Iraq as well.
