Staff Sgt. Adam S. Thomas, 31, of Takoma Park, Maryland, died October 4 in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan, from injuries caused by an improvised explosive device that exploded during dismounted operations.

The incident is under investigation.

Thomas was assigned to Company B, 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) in Fort Carson.

He first entered the Army in April 2008 and arrived in Fort Carson in February 2016.

Thomas is the second special forces soldier killed in action in Afghanistan since late August and the third overall in 2016, according to Pentagon officials.
