A 19-year-old soldier from New York City died in Afghanistan early Monday, the U.S. Army says.

Pvt. Danny Chen died in the Kandahar province of Afghanistan, according to an Army spokesman. He was an infantryman out of Fort Wainwright, Alaska, and had trained at Fort Benning, Ga.

Chen entered the Army in January of this year in New York.

Chen deployed to Afghanistan in August as a replacement in the 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment.

The Army has not released details on how Chen died in Afghanistan. His family was notified earlier this week, the spokesman said.
