RIP, Soldier.

A Green Beret from O'Hara, PA, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan committed suicide in Fayetteville, N.C., inside his residence near Ft. Bragg, police there said today.

Maj. Benjamin Follansbee was found dead Monday about 4:30 p.m., Fayetteville Police Department spokesman Gavin MacRoberts said.

Someone from Ft. Bragg called police asking for officers to check on Maj. Follansbee when he did not show up for work. Officers found his body when they checked his apartment on Sawtooth Drive.

Follansbee was a graduate of Shady Side Academy and the University of Delaware, where he was in the Army‘s ROTC program.

He served as an airborne Army Ranger in Iraq in 2005 and 2006. He later completed training as an Army Green Beret and did three tours of duty in Afghanistan. He earned two Bronze Stars, a Joint Service Achievement Medal, an Army Achievement Medal, an Army Service Medal and a NATO medal.
