KILLEEN, Texas (KTRK) -- A soldier died at the Fort Hood army base on Thursday, the Texas Military Department said.

Sgt. Bradley Moore, 36, was a noncommissioned officer with the Texas Army National Guard. He was conducting land navigation training at Fort Hood when he died.

The announcement of Moore's death comes as another Fort Hood soldier, Vanessa Guillen, was laid to rest in Houston this weekend. Guillen's remains were found more than two months after she was reported missing.
