A Mississippi National Guard spokesman says a soldier who died Friday was not from Mississippi as first reported.

Lt. Col. Tim Powell said Sunday that the soldier was assigned to the 155th Brigade Combat Team, II Marine Expeditionary Force, but was from another state.

The 155th Brigade Combat Team is made up of 3,500 Mississippi Guard soldiers and others from across the country.
