The military says a North Carolina-based Marine has died of what appears to be cardiac arrest at a U.S. base in Kuwait.
The Marine Corps said Tuesday that 29-year-old Lance Cpl. Chadwick A. Gilliam of Mayking, Ky., died Saturday. An autopsy is pending.
Gilliam was a member of 2nd Battalion, 6th Marines, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit from Camp Lejeune. He was an infantryman and joined the unit June 25, 2007, and was promoted to lance corporal last year.
