A Fort Stewart Soldier was killed while home on vacation in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, and his body was discovered on Aug. 28.
The deceased is Pfc. Nagi Jarvis, 22, a tank crewman assigned to 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division. Jarvis served in the Army for 21 months and Fort Stewart was his first assignment. He had no operational deployments. Jarvis is from Kingshill, Virgin Islands, and is survived by his mother and father.
"Pfc. Jarvis was a team player and a disciplined Soldier," Sgt. 1st Class Jessie Henson said, Jarvis' platoon sergeant. "He was a great battle buddy and friend to all the Soldiers in Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 67th Armor Regiment. More than anything, he was a dedicated Soldier, who was eager to learn the profession of an armor crewman. His presence in the unit will truly be missed."
The 3rd ID and the Fort Stewart community grieve with Pfc. Jarvis' family and friends.Details surrounding the incident are under investigation by the U.S. Virgin Islands Police Department, St. Croix Division.
