    1st US Service Member Dies of Coronavirus

    1st US Service Member Dies of Coronavirus

    RIP.

    The New Jersey National Guard soldier was hospitalized on March 21 and died on March 28.

    A member of the New Jersey ArmyNational Guard has died from the coronavirus, the Defense Department announced Monday.

    The guardsman, who tested positive for COVID-19 and had been hospitalized since March 21, died Saturday, the Pentagon said in a statement. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy identified the guardsman as Capt. Douglas Linn Hickok.


    "I'm heartbroken by the loss of @NJNationalGuard Captain Douglas Linn Hickok to coronavirus," Murphy tweeted Monday. "He was a drilling guardsman and physician's assistant ...Our thoughts are with his wife, children, and their family."'


    A member of Hickok's family told Military.com that he was born in Oklahoma and raised in California, and had been living most recently in Pennsylvania. He was 57.


    "Today is a sad day for the Department of Defense as we have lost our first American service member -- active, reserve or Guard -- to coronavirus," said Defense Secretary Mark Esper.
    Military cases of COVID-19 are rising. DoD will not release numbers as that gives our enemies too much information.

    SARS-CoV-2 is just another threat they get to face. So far the military has been pretty ham-handed with its response- isolating groups mixed with sick and healthy. Keeping them in the dark without info. Stuff like that. Typical military. Hopefully they will get it together.
