Army Brigadier General Dies In Afghanistan

The leader of the Army's 13th Sustainment Command has died in Afghanistan, according to Defense Department officials. Brigadier General Terence Hildner died Friday of what the Pentagon says were apparent natural causes, though they say the death is under investigation. Hildner listed his home as Fairfax, Va. His father told the Washington Post it's likely the general suffered a heart attack. He was 49. Hildner deployed to Afghanistan in December to take over the management of military supplies for the NATO training mission there.
