FLW announces second meningitis death in same training unit
FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (Feb. 17, 2009) — Post officials confirmed at a Tuesday afternoon press conference that a second trainee at Fort Leonard Wood has died of a strain of bacterial meningitis that they say isn’t contagious. That soldier, Pvt. 2nd Class Randy L. Stabnik of South Bend, Ind., died Tuesday of complications from a strep pneumonia infection leading to a non-contagious complication of meningitis at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield. Stabnik and another soldier from Company A of the 554th Engineers both died in what Lt. Col. John Lowery, the post hospital’s medical director, called a case of “lightning striking twice.” The family of the soldier who died Feb. 9 has requested that his name not be released, according to Maj. Gen. Gregg Martin, the commander of Fort Leonard Wood. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...
