The man found inside is Pfc. Nagi Jarvis, 22, a Fort Stewart soldier whose death the Army confirmed in a Thursday release.
The tank crewman had been home on leave from the 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, according to a release.
“Pfc. Jarvis was a team player and a disciplined soldier,” said Sgt. 1st Class Jessie Henson, his platoon sergeant. “He was a great battle buddy and friend to all the soldiers in Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 67th Armor Regiment. More than anything, he was a dedicated soldier, who was eager to learn the profession of an armor crewman. His presence in the unit will truly be missed.”
Family reported Jarvis missing on Aug. 26, the Virgin Island Consortium reported. He was found inside his burned Toyota Yaris in a private garage the following night.
He joined the Army in 2016, according to the release, serving only at Fort Stewart.
