Beale Tech. Sgt. and Paralegal Dies in Iraq

An airman deployed to Balad Air Base, Iraq, died Thursday of natural causes, the Defense Department announced Friday.

Tech. Sgt. Jackie L. Larsen, 37, of Tacoma, Wash., was assigned to the 9th Reconnaissance Wing at Beale Air Force Base, Calif.

Larsen died of non-combat-related medical causes, a Beale spokesman said, but the exact cause of death is not being released.

A paralegal by trade, Larsen was serving as the superintendent of the Beale legal office.

She had been assigned to Beale since April 2006, and she joined the Air Force in 1990.
