A spokeswoman for the 7th Sustainment Brigade says 44-year-old Staff Sgt. Donahue B. Harris collapsed in front of the company area at Joint Expeditionary Base Fort Story around 8:15 a.m. Monday.
Sgt. 1st Class Kelly Jo Bridgwater says Harris was cooling down at the end of a run when he collapsed.
Harris was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Harris joined the Army in 1995 and was a section chief with the 241st Seaport Operations Co.
