WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon says a 28-year-old sailor from Dallas has died of illness while on deployment in support of NATO forces in Afghanistan.

A Defense Department statement Wednesday says Culinary Specialist 2nd Class Milton W. Brown of Dallas died Aug. 4 in a hospital in Rota, Spain.

A Navy spokesman says he had been airlifted from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln for treatment.

Brown was assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 137 of Lemoore, Calif., deployed aboard the Nimitz-class carrier Lincoln.
