Spc. Justin Adams, 21, of North Redington, Fla. and Maj. Evans Hanson, 35, of Sugar Land, Texas, both assigned to the 1st Battalion, 15th Field Artillery Regiment, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team headquartered at Camp Hovey in Dongducheon, went missing while conducting reconnaissance for future training events.
"On November 21st the 2nd Infantry Division lost two exceptional Soldiers in the service of the United States of America," said Lt. Col. Jeremy McGuire, 1st Battalion, 15th Field Artillery Regiment commander. "Maj. Hanson and Spc. Adams possessed a sense of responsibility for a personal contribution to the United States Army, demonstrated by their acts of dedicated effort, reliability and thoroughness.
"There are many differences and similarities between this major and this specialist, but the similarity that drew them together and held them with a united sense of purpose was their duty," said McGuire.
The cause of the incident remains under investigation.
