The Department of Defense announced today the death of a soldier who was supporting Operation Inherent Resolve.
Staff Sgt. Felix A. Berrios, 33, of Houston, Texas, died Nov. 3, 2023, at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, as a result of a non-combat-related incident.
Berrios was assigned to the 25th Signal Battalion, 160th Signal Brigade, U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar.
“Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve continues to work by, with and through regional partners to militarily defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, in order to enable whole-of-coalition governmental actions to increase regional stability,” the Department of of Defense website states.
Berrios was remembered on Facebook by those who served with him.
“Till Valhalla brother! One of the best soldiers I had the privilege of serving with,” a veteran who served with Berrios wrote. “Felix Berrios you will be truly missed. To my 518th family if any of you need to talk I’m here.”
“Being that I just talked to you last month,” a fellow soldier wrote in disbelief. “We was supposed to link up when you got to SLC next week. From 518th to J2 school, deployment. The memories, crazy events, we all will cherish those.”
The Department of Defense said his death is under investigation.
